FirstLight Home Care Among Most-Awarded Providers in 2017 Best of Home Care® Awards

Award program helps consumers evaluate home care providers based on satisfaction ratings

CINCINNATI, Ohio (February 7, 2017) – FirstLight Home Care, a leader in non-medical home care services, has been recognized as one of the top providers in the industry by the 2017 Best of Home Care® Awards.

The awards are presented annually by Home Care Pulse, the premier third-party research and quality assurance home care management firm. Based solely on feedback from clients and employees, the Best in Home Care Awards recognize home care providers that offer excellent in-home care. More than one-third of FirstLight’s locations across the United States were recognized with a Best of Home Care Award.

Non-medical home care is the fastest-growing healthcare segment, with 40 percent growth expected between now and 2020. The growth of the segment is being driven by the explosion of the population aged 65 or older. According to a study by the AARP Public Policy Institute, 87 percent of adults in this age bracket want to stay in their current homes and communities as they age. Home care can help them do just that.

“These awards are incredibly meaningful because they’re based on feedback from our clients and caregivers,” said Jeff Bevis, president and chief executive officer of FirstLight Home Care. “Knowing they continue to rate us among the best only strengthens our commitment to our Culture of Care, which centers around providing the highest-quality, most compassionate care, delivered by the industry’s best caregivers. In a segment that’s experiencing significant growth, it’s important to have recognition like the Best of Home Care Awards to help consumers make the most informed decisions about home care services.”

Non-medical home care provides the assistance and support people may need to live independently in their homes. Traditionally, home care providers focus services exclusively on older adults who are aging in place. But FirstLight also delivers services to adults with disabilities; those recovering from illness, injury or surgery; new mothers; and anyone aged 18 or older who may need assistance managing activities where they live.

Best of Home Care Awards are presented to companies that believe strongly in providing the best home care services and have contracted with Home Care Pulse to effectively measure the quality of care they provide.
