FirstLight Home Care of Overland Park Assisting Seniors, Other Adults in Need of Care

National non-medical home care provider expands to Overland Park, KS to meet increasing demands for home care services

OVERLAND PARK, KS – April 9, 2019 – FirstLight® Home Care, an award-winning provider of non-medical home care services, has announced the opening of its Overland Park office, located at 8101 College Blvd, Suite 100, in Overland Park. Local entrepreneurs and brothers, Michael and Andrew Brainerd, own the location, which provides companion care and personal care services to residents throughout Overland Park, Lenexa, Leawood, Shawnee, and surrounding communities.

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

“It’s a great honor to be able to serve our communities by helping people maintain their independence during times of recovery and illness,” said Andrew. “Our goal is to allow these individuals to stay in the place they call home, while bringing peace of mind to their families.”

Michael added, “We’ve had first-hand experience with family members who were unable to stay in their home during times of recovery and illness, which was financially and emotionally difficult for our family. This has directly influenced our decision to open this FirstLight office. And we are honored to provide high-quality personal and companion care to the citizens of our community.”
