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.


Our Employer Benefit Program addresses a critical issue for employers and their most valued assets their employees! Families 1st Choice (FFC) Employer Benefit Program is designed to assist front-line managers and human resources executives in taking action to support their employees and especially those employees who may be holding down a full time job not only within their organization but also as a family caregiver.
The number of Americans working full or part time who are also assisting with the care of a loved one (i.e. elderly, sick, or disabled) of at least 15 hours per week is more than one in six employees. These statistics also report these employees/caregiver responsibilities significantly affect their work-life.
Many organizations do not realize that there is a very diverse population of American workers juggling a caregiving role. 22% of workers caring for other family members are middle-aged and 13% are of the age of 18 to 29.
