Local Entrepreneurs Expand Non-Medical Home Care Services to The Beaches

FirstLight Home Care now assisting aging seniors and other adults in Ponte Vedra, St. Augustine, Jacksonville 

JACKSONVILLE, FL – July 25, 2019 – FirstLight® Home Care, an award-winning provider of non-medical home care services, is pleased to welcome one of its newest offices located at 10151 Deerwood Park Blvd., in Jacksonville. Local entrepreneurs Eric Friedrich and Brandi Stone own FirstLight Home Care of The Beaches, which provides a variety of companion and personal caregiving services to residents in St. Johns and Duval counties.

FirstLight Home Care of The Beaches delivers non-medical home care to people who need companionship and help at home, including adults with disabilities, those recovering from illness, injury or surgery and those over the age of 18 who needs extra assistance. Highly trained FirstLight caregivers help with many needs, from errands, transportation and household tasks to individual needs like bathing and hygiene.

Eric is a military veteran, having served as an Intelligence Officer in the United States Air Force. After leaving from active duty in 2014, Eric opened a FirstLight Home Care office in Southeast Georgia. Since that time, Eric has partnered with Brandi to expand their home care services to the Ponte Vedra/Jacksonville area. Previously, Brandi worked for Eric in Brunswick, Georgia as the Marketing Director.

“It is a privilege to be able to serve our communities by helping people maintain their independence in the place they call home,” said Brandi. “We want to be that extra helping hand for seniors, people recuperating from surgery and those with dementia, as well as the family caregivers out there who may be feeling overwhelmed.”

Eric added, “Our goal is to offer practical home care solutions that support families and empower seniors to continue to live independently. As a military veteran myself, I am also committed to providing the best care for the veterans in our communities.”

The new office is continually recruiting compassionate, experienced caregivers. FirstLight offers competitive wages, a fun, caring environment and the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of individuals in the community.
