National non-medical home care provider expands to meet growing need in Massachusetts
BOSTON. – June 25, 2018 – FirstLight Home Care, an award-winning provider of non-medical home care, today announced it is opening a new location in Boston this summer.
Serving the Greater Boston area, the FirstLight office will be operated by husband and wife team Shalini and Girish Lahoty, who became passionate about senior care after experiencing the importance of caregivers in their own lives.
“My father was suffering from dementia before he passed away in India last year,” Shalini Lahoty said. “We were trying to coordinate his care from across the world and saw firsthand how difficult it can be when your loved one is in failing health and you can’t be there to care for them yourself.”
The couple says Girish’s mother has served as a true inspiration for the business as they watch her lovingly care for his ailing father.
“My dad has health and mobility issues that leave him wheelchair bound. My mother is a caregiver extraordinaire as she handles all of his needs,” said Girish Lahoty. “Not everyone has someone like my mother to care for them or their loved one.”
The Lahotys decided to open the new FirstLight Home Care office later this summer after researching aging population trends in the Boston area. Caregivers will serve area seniors, adults with disabilities, new mothers, those recovering from surgery and other adults in need of assistance. They provide help with many needs from personal hygiene and household duties, to errands and dementia care.
Shalini has experience running a business as she is primary owner of a dental hygiene business that serves area school children. Girish’s background is in customer experience, something he can also contribute to a brand that focuses on providing excellent customer care.
“Girish and Shalini have the entrepreneurial spirit and drive to make them prosperous franchise owners,” said Jeff Bevis, FirstLight Home Care co-founder and CEO. “We believe their career experience, passion for the business and dedication to customer service will be an asset to the people in Boston looking for companionship or care for their loved ones.”
The couple say they decided to invest in FirstLight after getting glowing reviews from other franchise owners. They also cite the company’s structure and professionalism.
Since opening its first franchise location in 2010, FirstLight Home Care has experienced steady growth and has awarded more than 225 locations in 34 states throughout the U.S.
