Industry award for FirstLight

FirstLight Home Care, serving Pierce and Thurston counties, has been recognized for its work in the homecare industry by the 2017 Best of Home Care Awards.

The awards are presented annually by Home Care Pulse, a third-party research and quality-assurance homecare management firm, and are based on feedback from clients and employees.

More than one-third of FirstLight’s locations across the United States were honored. In Washington, FirstLight of South Sound, which is based in Olympia, received Provider of Choice and Employer of Choice awards.

The South Sound franchise, owned by Sarah and Greg Lane, offers home, respite and senior care services throughout Thurston County and the south Pierce County area. The latter includes DuPont, Yelm and Roy.

In addition to helping older adults live independently in their homes, FirstLight serves people who have disabilities or are recovering from illness, injury or surgery.
