Local Entrepreneur Brings Home Care Services, Jobs to Lake, Sumter and Marion Counties

THE VILLAGES, FL – December 10, 2020 – FirstLight® Home Care, an award-winning provider of non-medical home care services, is pleased to welcome one of its newest offices, FirstLight Home Care of Lake, Sumter, & Marion.

Owner Amie Deak operates the location, which provides companion and personal caregiving services to residents in The Villages® community, Ocala, and all of Lake, Sumter and Marion Counties.

“Owning a FirstLight business allows me to get back to what I love: serving others,” stated Amie. “After spending 25 years in the healthcare world in both clinical and administrative roles, I have witnessed the value of having a caregiver in the home for individuals and their families. I believe there is nothing more powerful than developing a relationship with someone while caring for them in the place they call home.”

As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Amie has had the honor and privilege of caring for people while they are in their home. Making a difference in the lives of others has always been her calling.

“Home care takes place in someone’s sanctuary, and it warrants a tremendous amount of trust and respect.  As caregivers, we have the honor of serving individuals so they can remain in familiar surroundings while they recover from an injury or illness, as they cope with a chronic condition, or as they approach the end of their lives. I want our caregivers to make a difference in the quality of life of the people and communities we serve.”

FirstLight Home Care of Lake, Sumter, & Marion delivers non-medical home care services to individuals who need support at home, including seniors, veterans, adults with disabilities and those recuperating. Highly trained FirstLight caregivers help with many needs, from errands, transportation and household tasks to individual responsibilities like bathing and personal hygiene.

The office is also hiring professional caregivers. FirstLight offers competitive wages, a fun, caring environment, and the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others. Visit
