I love small businesses that pursue excellence, especially the ones who have humble beginnings and are dedicated to providing a solution for life’s challenges. First Light Home Care does this by providing quality care-giving services to families who have members needing assistance. Their services range from companion, personal care and dementia care, to respite and travel companionship.
During my interview with owner Sarah Lane, who owns the business with her husband Greg, I learned that the passion to serve the elderly started early in her adult life and has brought much satisfaction today. Voted Best Of The South Sound 2015 and Best Of The South Sound 2016, with only three years running, the business helps families of the elderly have peace of mind by providing excellent care giving services with high standards. Sarah not only hires caregivers who meet above-Washington State standards, but also considers, before making the hiring decision, “would I trust this person with my own parents?” and makes it a practice to only hire people who are caring and compassionate. This to me speaks volumes about the care FirstLight provides to their clients. Her staff, which is the bread and butter of her business, is very important to her. She is proud of them and considers it a privilege to participate in helping people “put food on the table.”
What I like about Sarah, the heart of FirstLight, is that she is humble, high achieving and seeks to benefit her clients. I highly recommend anyone looking for quality care givers to let FirstLight help.
