FirstLight Home Care will open a new franchised location in Santa Clarita next year, the Ohio-based company announced Wednesday.

FirstLight provides in-home care for seniors, adults with disabilities, veterans and other adults in need of assistance.

“This will be our first office in the Santa Clarita area, and it’s coming at a great time,” said FirstLight Chief Executive Jeff Bevis in a statement. “As we age, there are many decisions that have to be made, and one of them is how we want to spend our senior years. FirstLight offers an option and a level of caring that is unsurpassed for those who want to remain in their homes.”

The company has more than 250 locations in the U.S., including one franchise in Sherman Oaks.
