A Day in the Life of a FirstLight Home Care Franchisee

No two FirstLight Home Care franchisees are the same. Our home care franchisees come from a variety of professional, ethnic and industry backgrounds.  However, that doesn’t mean their daily goals as a FirstLight Home Care owner aren’t the same.  Each home care franchise owner approaches each day with the same goals in mind: “How many people can we help today? And how can we provide exceptional service and best improve the well-being, of our clients?” For FirstLight Home Care owners, it’s about the rewarding aspects of helping families care for loved ones and their communities. To be frank, it’s not easy being an owner; each day is fast-paced, and requires careful management of several moving parts simultaneously, all with patience, kindness, in-depth industry knowledge and with the client’s best interest in mind.

At FirstLight, we have adopted a two person approach to our business model; Networker and Care Coordinator.  As the Networker, a FirstLight Home Care franchisee may participate in networking events; tradeshow, call on potential referral sources or perhaps visit a family for an “in home assessment”.  Building the brand and obtaining referral sources is of utmost importance.

As the Care Coordinator FirstLight Home Care owners are sourcing, interviewing and hiring potential caregivers and employees. This task is incredibly crucial to all owners.  Much of your growth as a FirstLight home care franchisee will reside with your staff and caregivers specifically.  As such, before opening their FirstLight Home Care franchise, owners are trained and provided proprietary tools specifically on hiring the proper caregivers. We look for certain characteristics and qualities in our caregivers to ensure that all team members embody our Culture of Care philosophy. 

FirstLight Home Care home care franchisses are truly special people. They are people who wish to better their community, serve others and seek the rewarding satisfaction that they made a difference in someone’s life today. FirstLight Home Care owners truly are extraordinary people who care exceptionally.
