For the past five years, FirstCare Home Health has provided me with four aide visits daily and a nurse’s visit every other day. FirstCare has treated me well and put my needs first. The other agencies didn’t seem to put the client’s needs ahead of their own. I would say that for a 24-hour a day home care agency, FirstCare is the best in Lancaster County and maybe in Nebraska.

I want to say “thank you” to everyone who cared for Dad over the past years. You were always there to listen to me and help solve problems with his situation. I could not have kept Dad at home without each and every one of you at FirstCare.  So once again a big “thank you!”
