FirstLight HomeCare of Southern Maine is owned and operated by husband and wife team Peter Gartland and Carol Larkin. We left private industry management positions and chose to develop this in-home care company based on our 15+ years of personal caregiving to our elder parents. Because of our own first-hand experience with elder care, we know the issues, questions and challenges facing individuals who assume the caregiver role.

We know your first priority when choosing a home care provider is finding someone you can trust and rely on… someone who will care for your loved one as you would, and as we would our own. We’ve been where you are, and this is one of the main reasons we chose to be in this business.
