Business Spotlight: Couple takes personal approach in providing caregivers (The Coastal Star)
Broward County, Fla. (August 18, 2016) – A move from Manhattan to Gulf Stream two years ago marked the start of a new business venture for Lisa and Chris Ruth. They opened non medical home care franchises, FirstLight Home Care of the Gulf Coast and FirstLight Home Care of the Palm Beaches. This year, they opened a third location in Deerfield Beach to serve communities south of Palm Beach County, and they now employ 150 caregivers. The business answers a community need — providing home care for people, mainly seniors, who require assistance to stay at home.
