Seniors & Aging ASK THE EXPERTS SPECIAL ADVERTISING SECTION
What inspired Sandy Kursban to open Family & Nursing Care 50 years ago?
It was my mother Sandy Kursban’s close relationship with her grandparents that inspired her love
of older adults. She witnessed firsthand how hard it became for her grandfather to live independently. Sandy helped to pioneer the aging-in-place revolution when she founded Family & Nursing
Care in 1968 to give people the option of continuing to live at home by having the support of
experienced caregivers who can assist with tasks that most people take for granted, like bathing,
dressing, meal preparation, companionship and so much more. We continue to innovate and collaborate with healthcare leaders, and look forward to doing so for the next 50 years.
When you survey your clients, what areas always receive high marks?
Family & Nursing Care surveys its clients annually, and we are humbled to report that 98
percent of them would recommend us to a friend or family member. We attribute these high
marks to our caring and compassionate staff who are experts in helping families navigate their
crises. Half of those who reach out to us initially need help within 24 hours. Our team makes
sure that clients are supported in a calm and caring way. Our client service managers act as the
primary point of contact for clients’ home care needs, both practical and emotional. Catering to
immediate needs without sacrificing quality is what sets Family & Nursing Care apart, and what
we have become experts in throughout our half century in business.
