Wichita Entrepreneur to Open FirstLight Home Care Location
WICHITA, Kansas (December 21, 2016) – FirstLight Home Care, an award-winning provider of non-medical home care, has selected Wichita, Kansas as one of its newest locations. FirstLight Home Care of Wichita is scheduled to open in February 2017 and will be owned and operated by Wichita resident and entrepreneur Amal Hayyeh.
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 Wichita will serve residents of Wichita and surrounding communities including Augusta, Andover, Bel Aire, Benton, Clearwater, Derby, Goddard, Hays, Haysville, Kechi, Maize, Mulvane, Newtown, Park City, Rose Hill, Towanda and Valley Center, as well as Hutchinson. The location is recruiting compassionate, experienced individuals for an anticipated 10 full- and part-time caregiver and office positions. FirstLight offers competitive wages, a caring environment and the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of individuals in the community. Interested candidates should email resumes to firstname.lastname@example.org.
“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,” Hayyeh said. “We’re proud to be able to bring the services people in the Witchita area 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.
