With You Every Step of the Way
At FirstLight® Home Care, our home care franchise owners may go into business for themselves and to help others, but they’ll never be by themselves. We believe that comprehensive training and a reliable support system are the foundations for building a strong home care business. Our company’s success relies on the success of every one of our franchise locations, from the owners to the managers to the caregivers. That’s why we set you up with everything you need to provide the highest level of care.
Our comprehensive ongoing training and support include:
- Online and in-person training that gives new owners hands-on learning of home care best practices as well as the FirstLight operating system and business model.
- Virtual support and on-site visits to your location from our Business Development Directors, our boots on the ground support team. They’ll offer guidance on everything from recruiting, networking, and business planning to marketing and overall growth.
- Nimble, proactive support when unexpected events impact our industry and your business, such as Covid-19. Our support team is agile, responsive, and committed to collaborating in order to provide the best solutions.
In addition to the above support, our team is always here for you if you have questions, concerns, or problems – before, during, and after the launch of your home care business.
Your Dedicated Launch Specialist
FirstLight also provides new franchise owners with their very own Launch Specialist, who will guide then through their first nine months in business. From attending FlightSchool, our robust training program for new owners, to providing weekly support, they’ll be by your side to make sure you are fully confident with your new endeavor. They’ll also be with you every step of the way when it comes to operations, networking, marketing, and general best practices that help launch and grow your business.
Financing Assistance & Cash Flow Support
FirstLight has relationships with Live Oak Bank and FranFund and can connect new franchise owners with financing options. Our senior care franchise opportunity is a low-cost investment with an “all in” investment of around $175,000. For veterans, we offer a 20% discount on the regular initial franchise fee in acknowledgment and gratitude for their sacrifice and service.
We also offer our owners assistance with managing cash flow, which is why our royalty structure is 5% of your monthly revenue, based on collected revenues, not as revenues are billed. Our team will also offer accounts receivable support to help navigate the waters of the third-party payer environment.

Additionally, a comprehensive technology suite and dedicated support team streamline franchisee operations, relationships to national alliances keep franchisees on top of industry best practices, and a leadership team defined by 160-plus combined years in the home care franchise space tirelessly drives FirstLight forward.
