Charting a New Course to Your Health

About Us

The Sbriglio family has been in the business of helping people get better since 1950, when Mrs. Margaret Sbriglio opened her first nursing and rehabilitation center in Chester, CT. After joining the family business, her sons, Dr. Robert Sbriglio and Martin Sbriglio, RN, wanted to create a continuum of care within the Ryders health management network. The family’s six nursing and rehabilitation facilities are all four- and five-star centers, and the sons wanted to give their patients the same quality care in the patient’s home.

Lighthouse Companion Care was launched in 2009, providing non-medical services by a Homemaker/Companion or a Personal Care Attendant to clients needing assistance to remain home safely. Lighthouse Home Health Care was later formed to meet the medical homecare needs in the community with nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, medical social work, and home health aide services. The company began providing these services in November, 2012 after completing licensure and Medicare certification.
