March 08, 2016 // Franchising.com // CINCINNATI, Ohio – FirstLight HomeCare, a provider of quality, non-medical in-home care, today released its annual client satisfaction survey scores that found FirstLight providers ranked above the industry average in 9 out of 10 categories evaluated. The client satisfaction scores are based on monthly client surveys conducted by third-party research and quality assurance firm Home Care Pulse, on behalf of more than 1,300 home care providers nationwide.
FirstLight HomeCare’s superior client satisfaction survey results helped earn the organization the Best of Home Care® Endorsed National Provider distinction for the third consecutive year. FirstLight is one of only five organizations nationwide to receive this designation. Endorsed National Providers demonstrate an ongoing dedication to delivering exceptional care and lead the industry in their focus on both client and caregiver satisfaction. To qualify as a Best of Home Care® Endorsed National Provider, an organization must have contracted with Home Care Pulse to gather and report client feedback.
Home Care Pulse provides the most comprehensive national review of client and caregiver satisfaction in the private duty home care industry. The monthly client satisfaction surveys evaluate ten categories, from compassion and knowledge of caregivers to their appearance and work ethic. The graph below shows the average satisfaction rating of FirstLight clients surveyed from January through December 2015.
“I am most proud of the area in which we ranked above all others – compassion of caregivers,” said Jeff Bevis, FirstLight HomeCare Chief Executive Officer. “Our number one priority is to create a Culture of Care that embraces all clients and caregivers. Our Home Care Pulse client satisfaction scores and Endorsed National Provider distinction reaffirm that we are staying true to our mission and making a difference in the lives of every client we have the honor of serving.”
“It’s not every day that we’re able to recognize an entire corporation for their dedication to quality home care, but today I’m pleased to recognize FirstLight Home Care as a Best of Home Care® Endorsed National Provider,” said Aaron Marcum, CEO and Founder of Home Care Pulse. “This endorsement signifies that FirstLight isn’t committed to quality in word only. They’ve demonstrated that they care about their clients’ needs and they’re willing to not only listen, but also respond on a personal and corporate-wide level.”
