Hearthside Home Care Converts to FirstLight Home Care Franchise

FirstLight Home Care, a leading national provider of non-medical home care, announces that Hearthside Home Care is joining the FirstLight family, becoming the first independent home care provider to convert to a FirstLight franchise – and the first true independent conversion to occur across the home care industry to date.

Owners and business partners Tina Glenn and Roget de Percin Berendes have been operating Hearthside Home Care in the Greensboro, N.C., area for nearly 20 years, but realized the market is evolving and partnering with FirstLight’s national franchise network offers the best opportunity to thrive.

FirstLight Home Care of Guilford will serve the Greensboro, N.C., area with non-medical home care, helping individuals with many needs – from personal hygiene and household duties such as cooking, cleaning and running errands to mobility assistance and dementia care. It will remain a local company and no caregivers will be displaced. The transition is already underway and is expected to be complete within a few months.

FirstLight Home Care is a top rated non-medical home care provider with a network of offices that provides more than 100,000 hours per week in care for more than 4,800 clients in over 34 states. The company has created a new standard of client satisfaction and service quality in home care by combining best practices with innovative approaches to make them an emerging market leader in a rapidly-growing industry.
