Roselle Entrepreneurs to Open FirstLight Home Care Location
ROSELLE, Ill. (December 20, 2016) – FirstLight Home Care, an award-winning provider of non-medical home care, has selected Roselle, Illinois as its newest location. FirstLight Home Care of Roselle is scheduled to open in spring 2017 and will be owned and operated by Schaumberg residents and entrepreneurs Patty Eubanks and Denise Birdsell.
The new FirstLight Home Care office will serve local families by providing non-medical home care services for older adults, as well as people with disabilities; those recovering from illness, injury or surgery; new mothers; and anyone who may need assistance managing activities where they live. Non-medical home care is the fastest-growing healthcare segment, with 40 percent growth expected between now and 2020.
FirstLight Home Care of Roselle will serve residents of Cook and DuPage counties, including Addison, Elmhurst, Itasca, Lombard, Medinah, Roselle, Schaumburg, Villa Park and Wood Dale and the surrounding communities. The location is currently completing the Illinois licensure process, and will begin recruiting for caregivers in early 2017.
“Each day, 10,000 people in the United States turn 65, and an estimated 90 percent of them want to stay in their own homes as they age,” Eubanks said. “We’re proud to be able to bring the services people in our communities need to maintain independence in their homes, enhance their quality of life and minimize the demands on family caregivers who would otherwise be their only source of support.”
Since opening its first location in 2009, FirstLight Home Care has experienced steady growth and is now operating nearly 150 locations in more than 30 states. It has been recognized as one of the fastest-growing privately held companies by Inc. Magazine’s Inc. 5000 and as one of the top franchise systems in the United States by Franchise Times.
