We care at Families 1st Choice

Families 1st Choice Home Care represents our dedication and passion to family and loved ones. Compassionate care and respect is important to everyone and especially those family members who need it the most – which may be when one cannot satisfactorily care for themselves or they just need a little extra help from time-to-time.


The success of Families 1st Choice (FFC) Home Care relies on the quality of care we provide. That is why, we choose only the best candidates for this position of trust and responsibility.

Who are FFC Caregivers?

At Families 1st Choice (FFC) Home care, our priority is to maintain standards that match service excellence with the care we provide to you or your loved one. To ensure that every FFC caregiver offers consistent high quality care, we employ our own staff after a meticulous assessment of their qualifications and skills. Since we pay the caregiver’s salary and take care of the tax component for the payroll, there is no need for you to take this financial burden upon your shoulders. You can also eliminate the need for doing extensive background checks on the caregiver before entrusting your loved one into their care because FFC covers all of this when we employ the individual caregiver. Our thorough process enables us to hire knowledgeable, compassionate, truly committed caregivers to serve your needs.
