New business to provide in-home care and support services for local community
FirstLight HomeCare, provider of quality, affordable, non-medical in-home care for adults, is now open in Olympia. FirstLight Home Care of South Sound is owned by local residents Sarah and Greg Lane.
FirstLight HomeCare of South Sound offers complete companion and personal care services for seniors, new mothers, those recovering from surgery and others in need of assistance. Services include companionship, meal preparation, light housekeeping, shopping, driving to doctors’ appointments, personal care and any other services that help the people we serve stay comfortable in their own homes.
In addition to Olympia, FirstLight HomeCare will serve residents throughout Thurston County including Lacey, Tumwater, Yelm, DuPont, Tenino, Rainer and Rochester.
Lifelong Olympia residents, the Lanes wanted to start a business together that would serve the community their families have called home for generations. Working in public service and non-profits, they knew their business would have a service theme.
“We looked around the community to see what services were needed,” Sarah Lane said. “We found that not only is a large portion of the U.S. population turning 65 every day, but our area also has a higher than average number of seniors.”
The final decision was more personal than simple demographics.
“We remembered when our grandparents were at a point when they could no longer remain home alone,” Lane said. “We didn’t know home care was an option, we wish we had. We liked the idea of giving seniors more housing options, including stay in their own homes, by providing the assistance they need to maintain independence, dignity and respect, while also providing the support families need for peace-of-mind.”
