The care services industry is a natural fit for them.
We were looking for a business opportunity that aligns with our spirit and commitment to our local community which would allow us to work together,” Terry Noland explained. “FirstLight wasn’t the only business we investigated but was by far the best,” he said. “We both have led separate careers and now feel we have reached a place in our lives where we can express our passion for helping others in need.”
FirstLight’s ‘Culture of Care’ is not a catch phrase; it is the vision we live in every relationship we form with our clients, caregivers, family and friends,” he said. “We feel what we do matters to us more than any other job we have ever held. It is the greatest feeling in the world to be in a position to help others and support ourselves at the same time.”
For Lynn Noland, the business is the perfect opportunity to combine her deeply rooted commitment to the community with a purpose-driven future that allows her to work with her husband.
“FirstLight Home Care is providing an opportunity for me to live out my mission and make it my business to help others in need,” she said. “The bonus is that I get to do it with my favorite person side by side.”
