FirstLight Home Care Opens Location in Greater Memphis
MEMPHIS, TN – February 24, 2020 – FirstLight Home Care, an award-winning provider of non-medical home care services, is pleased to welcome one of its newest offices, FirstLight Home Care of Greater Memphis. Owners Carmalyta and Jinliang Cai operate the location, which provides companion and personal caregiving services to residents in Memphis, Germantown, Collierville, Cordova and surrounding areas.
Carmelyta has served a 20+ year career as a professional caregiver, most notably as a surgical nurse at St. Francis Hospital, and a step-down ICU nurse at Methodist Hospital in Germantown. Her multitude of awards, including the 2020 Nursing Star, speak to the high quality of care and professionalism she brings to each patient.
“I am very excited to lead our FirstLight team to deliver the high-quality home care our seniors deserve,” stated Carmelyta. “We are proud to create caregiver jobs in this market, and we are committed to investing in our team by providing comprehensive training so that they will be the best professional caregivers to our seniors. We offer competitive wages, a fun, caring environment, and the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others.”
“Our goal is to improve the overall health, well-being and quality of life for aging adults in our community,” added Jinliang. “My wife and I have aging parents who live far away from us in Indonesia and China. We understand the guilt and concern many adult children have when they are not able to be there regularly for their parents. Although no one can replace a family caregiver’s connection to an aging parent, we want to be the next best thing… their eyes, ears, and a helping hand. I think it is the most compassionate thing an adult child can do for their parents.”
Jin built his career as a manager at FedEx, and he truly believes in a people-first approach to management that focuses on investing in people and empowering them to provide the best level of service to customers.
At FirstLight Home Care, Carmelyta and Jin bring together the best of professional caregiving and management expertise to serve the greater Memphis community.
