SCRANTON, PA –  August 9, 2017 – FirstLight Home Care, an award-winning provider of non-medical home care, today announced the opening of its new location in Scranton, PA.

The new FirstLight Home Care office serves area seniors, new and busy mothers, those recovering from surgery and other adults in need of assistance. FirstLight caregivers are available to help with many needs – from household duties such as cooking, cleaning and running errands, to mobility assistance and dementia care.

“I personally know and understand the hardship of family and friends who struggle with health and mobility concerns, as well as their desire to remain independent and live their lives with choices and dignity,” said Tomasi. “My goal is to provide quality, reliable home care and companion care for families in and around Scranton.”

“Peter’s goal to build a business to help people live independently and achieve the quality of life they deserve, combined with his personal experience as a caregiver, makes him the ideal person to open FirstLight’s office in Greater Scranton,” said Jeff Bevis, FirstLight Home Care Chief Executive Officer. “We can’t wait to see the positive impact his work is sure to have on the clients and communities he serves.”
