When I founded FirstLight in 2010, I didn’t yet have a name for the kind of culture I wanted to create. I knew I wanted to give seniors, and everyone else who could benefit, a better option for home care—but there was something more to it than that. From the start, we have always been a company of listeners, helpers and good friends.
That’s where our Culture of Care comes from.
At FirstLight, we are all caregivers. Our team members care for each other. It’s the support and resources given to our leaders. It’s the training opportunities and acknowledgments given to our helpers. The high rate of satisfaction within FirstLight isn’t just a datapoint—it’s a way of life.
We have now grown to 230 locations, all of which are franchised, and we’re still growing. Our team is happy, productive and successful. Our clients are exceptionally well cared for, and their families are at ease.
Every year, I say that it’s an exciting time for FirstLight. It always is. No one else in the industry is doing what we’re doing, and that need for quality care I saw in 2010 isn’t going anywhere. - Jeff Bevis

Carteris understood firsthand how important it was for families to find the right care. And he also saw the connection between his ability to match candidates with employers and how these skills could be used to help match families with the right caregivers.
