FirstLight Home Care of Boston Northwest Now Assisting Seniors, Other Adults in Need of Care

National non-medical home care provider expands to Greater Boston to meet increasing demand for home care

MEDFORD, MA– December 4, 2018 – FirstLight® Home Care, an award-winning provider of non-medical home care services, has expanded to Greater Boston to assist seniors and other adults in need of care. FirstLight announced the opening of its Boston Northwest office this past summer. Local entrepreneurs and senior care advocates, Girish and Shalini Lahoty, own the location which provides home care services to residents in the Metro Boston area and surrounding communities.FirstLight Home Care of Boston Northwest

FirstLight Home Care of Boston Northwest offers personalized companion and personal care services to aging seniors; adults with disabilities; those recovering from illness, injury or surgery; new and busy mothers; veterans and other adults who require assistance. Highly-trained FirstLight caregivers help with many needs, from household activities and running errands, to mobility assistance and dementia care.

“We’ve been in our clients’ shoes,” said Girish. “While coordinating care for a parent from miles away, Shalini and I realized how difficult it can be when a loved one is in failing health and you can’t be there to care for them yourself. At that point, we recognized the importance of compassionate caregivers who would provide the same care we would.”

Shalini added, “With the aging population in the U.S., we felt this would be a great opportunity to make a meaningful difference in people’s lives. We want to enable seniors to age with dignity in the comfort of their own homes, while delivering peace of mind to their families.”

FirstLight Home Care of Boston Northwest, located at 407R Mystic Ave, Suite 34B, in Medford, is also seeking exceptional caregivers to join its home care team. For information, visit

Since opening its first franchise location in 2010, FirstLight Home Care has experienced steady growth and is now serving or in the process of serving clients in more than 250 locations in 34 states throughout the U.S.
