FirstLight Home Care Opens 14 New Locations in Six Months
National non-medical home care provider experiences exceptional growth
CINCINNATI, July 26, 2018 -- FirstLight Home Care, an award-winning provider of non-medical home care, is experiencing explosive growth as the home care industry swells.
The franchisor now has more than 170 locations in 34 states, including 14 that already opened this year. These include new offices in Pearland, Texas; Bentonville, Arkansas and their first Hawaii location in Honolulu. There are about 60 more FirstLight locations in development in areas like Atlanta, Boston and Hartford. They have signed their first business conversion deal as well.
"We attribue our favorable outcome to two things," said Jeff Bevis, CEO of FirstLight Home Care. "The first is the expanding population of older Americans who prefer to age at home. The other is a business model that focuses on exceptional caregiving and support for our clients and franchise owners."
Forbes recently named FirstLight Home Care among the top 10 franchises to buy in their low investment category. The company's five-year growth rate of 29.9 percent, far above any other home care franchise recognized, was a key reason. In fact, system revenue grew by 30 percent from 2016 to 2017.
These gains are expected to continue as the population of older Americans increases.
"Industry projections show the home care industry will double in the next 10 years," said Bevis. "New, emerging factors like Medicare Advantage coverage for personal care services are also expected to start impacting demand, and we're looking forward to helping industry professionals and other entrepreneurs who are passionate about non-medical home care enter emerging markets to meet the coming demands."
FirstLight serves seniors, adults with disabilities, new mothers, those recovering from surgery and other adults in need of assistance. Their caregivers help with many needs – from personal hygiene and household duties such as cooking, cleaning and running errands to mobility assistance and dementia care.
