FirstLight Home Care of West Bend 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 need extra assistance. Highly trained FirstLight caregivers help with many needs, from errands, transportation and household tasks to individual needs like bathing and personal hygiene.

“When my grandmother became ill, I helped care for her until her passing,” said Kelly. “Toward the end, she felt like she had no place, not knowing where to go, what to do, or who to turn to. Unfortunately, she was not able to pass with dignity or grace. She is my ‘why’. I want to ensure that the people we care for feel happy, comfortable, safe and know that their lives are valued.”

FirstLight is that extra helping hand for aging seniors, military veterans, those recuperating, individuals with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, as well as the family caregivers out there who may be feeling overwhelmed in their caregiving role.

The new West Bend office is 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. 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 30+ states throughout the U.S.
