FirstLight Home Care, an award-winning provider of non-medical home care, today announced it is opening a new location in Boston this summer.
Serving the Greater Boston area, the FirstLight office will be operated by husband and wife team Girish and Shalini Lahoty, who became passionate about senior care after experiencing the importance of caregivers in their own lives.
“My father was suffering from dementia before he passed away in India last year,” Shalini Lahoty said. “We were trying to coordinate his care from across the world and saw firsthand how difficult it can be when your loved one is in failing health and you can’t be there to care for them yourself.”
The couple says Girish’s mother has served as a true inspiration for the business as they watch her lovingly care for his ailing father.
“My dad’s had chronic health issues and throughout the years my mom has handled all of his needs while managing the house and kids,” said Girish Lahoty. “She is a caregiver extraordinaire but not everyone has someone like my mom to care for them or their loved one.”
The Lahotys decided to open the new FirstLight Home Care office later this summer in the Boston area. Caregivers will serve area seniors, adults with disabilities, new mothers, those recovering from surgery and other adults in need of assistance. They provide help with many needs from personal hygiene and household duties, to errands and dementia care.
