After a terrible experience with another home health care provider we met with the owner of First Light for information regarding care of my 95 year old father who lived at home, was sharp, very fit and not at all happy about having in home care. From the first meeting I felt that the owner was invested in his business and his clients. He expressed a commitment to matching the needs and personality of the client to a caregiver and with some coordination, we have three wonderful caregivers who Dad looks forward to seeing everyday. The first helps keep him fit with excursions to the pool, driving range and putting green. She also keeps easy to heat or eat food in the fridge. We schedule appointments during her shift and she has come to know each of his doctors. Another caregiver takes him on errands or to the wellness center for a workout. She also adds value to his passion of painting landscapes by touching up details that he has trouble with due to low vision problems. His third caregiver comes only once a week. She has become very special to him as well. On Sunday she takes him to church and then to brunch. She is his granddaughter's age and she never knew her grandfather, so the relationship has meaning for both of them on several levels. I can't say enough about how First Light has restored the relationship between Dad and I, my sanity and has restored the independence for Dad that he lost when he stopped driving. I know that Dad will need increased levels of care in the future and am confident that with First Light as a partner, we will have the support we will need.
This is the only home care that came to my home and was interested in what kind of care we needed for my mother-in-law.they also provided an interview with the care giver before she actually started you can meet before she actually started.my husband and I really appreciated that.
