Our Franchisees Say it Best
"I did my vetting process with many home care companies, and none of them have the caliber of leadership that FirstLight has. It’s reassuring to me that the majority of the leadership has been in the home care business for many, many years."
-Tim Mackin, York & Lancaster, PA
“This is my first experience going into franchise. The support and training and then the five days of new owner training that we went through really gave us a leg up to get started.”
- Ben Crawley, Maryville & Knoxville, TN
"We believe that strongly that to have a strong business, the key is hiring outstanding employees because they represent us every day out there. We’re part of the team… we happen to be owners but we’re no different from anybody else. It’s all one team focused on providing the best care for those clients."
