Entrepreneur Expands to Brighton with Second FirstLight Home Care Location

BRIGHTON, MI – SEPTEMBER 15, 2020 – FirstLight® Home Care franchise owner Dr. Deborah Moerland recently expanded her non-medical home care business by opening FirstLight Home Care of Brighton. This is the second location for Dr. Moerland, who also owns and operates a FirstLight territory in Lansing.

FirstLight Home Care of Brighton provides companion and personal caregiving services to residents in Brighton, Howell, Chelsea, Dexter and other surrounding Michigan communities.

“My goal has always been to improve the quality of life for all our clients and their families,” said Moerland. “I am grateful for the ability to expand my business and assist even more individuals in need of home care services.

FirstLight Home Care delivers non-medical home care services to people who need companionship and help at home, including seniors, veterans, adults with disabilities and those recovering from illness, injury or surgery. Highly trained FirstLight caregivers help with many needs, from errands, transportation and household tasks to individual responsibilities like bathing and personal hygiene.

Moerland added, “It is such a privilege to serve our elderly population by helping them maintain their dignity and independence in the place they call home. During these uncertain times, home care is even more essential than ever before. I want FirstLight to be that extra helping hand for those needing care but wishing to remain in their own homes, while offering peace of mind to the families helping to provide that care.”

The Brighton office is in the McPherson Professional Building in Howell at 820 Byron Road. The home care company is also looking for compassionate caregivers. FirstLight offers competitive wages, a fun, caring environment, and the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others. Visit for more information.
