FirstLight Home Care Reports Record Revenues as Senior Care Booms
FirstLight Home Care has set all new records for its national business growth. For the first and second quarters, the company has reported $41 million in gross revenues for franchisees, up 20 percent versus the prior year.
“Caring is our calling,” said Jeff Bevis, CEO of FirstLight Home Care. “The growing elderly population is driving the demand for the types of services that we offer. Our depth of knowledge at franchisor level to support our franchisees in new markets have been a good lever for us. We are certainly a for-profit business, but our service-orientated culture of care and franchisees who are leaders in their local communities have been instrumental in the success that we’ve seen.”
FirstLight offers complete non-medical companion and personal care services for seniors, new mothers, those recovering from surgery and other adults in need of assistance. Services include bathing and hygiene, walking and mobility assistance, continence and toileting assistance, as well as household services such as cooking, cleaning, and running errands.
