Family & Nursing Care Celebrates 50 Years in Business

Celebrating 50 Years in Home Care

Office move, service area expansion, leadership transition, and stakeholder events mark milestone anniversary

Silver Spring, MD – Family & Nursing Care, the premier resource for in-home care services for older adults, celebrates half a century in business in 2018 with an office move, service area expansion, leadership transition, and a series of events for key stakeholders. Family & Nursing Care recently moved from 962 Wayne Avenue in Silver Spring just down the street to a larger space at 1010 Wayne Avenue. In addition, the company is currently expanding its service area coverage to include Anne Arundel and Howard Counties. Neal Kursban, formerly President of Family & Nursing Care, is now Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Jeff Zukerman, previously the company’s Chief Operating Officer (COO), has assumed the position of President. The company is celebrating throughout 2018 with current employees, caregivers, professional partners, and clients and their families.

“This is an exciting time for Family & Nursing Care,” said Neal Kursban, Family & Nursing Care’s CEO. “Our expansion will help us serve more families who can benefit from our unique approach to home care, and my transition to CEO will allow me to focus more on working directly with our professional partners to meet the evolving demands of the healthcare system.”

According to Kursban, strategic growth has been part of the company’s plan since his mother, Sandy Kursban, started Family & Nursing Care in 1968. He says now is the time because private duty home care has shifted from being considered a luxury to becoming a necessity. The number of Americans aged 85 and older is projected to more than triple from 5.8 million in 2010 to over 19 million by 2050, so manageable, strategic growth in private duty home care is imperative. Eventually, the company has plans to expand across the mid-Atlantic region.

“Family & Nursing Care is well-positioned for innovation and expansion because of our flexibility,” said Jeff Zukerman, the company’s new President. “We are proactive, while also maintaining a strong infrastructure and ensuring our partners’ expectations are exceeded and clients continue to receive top-tier care.”

Kursban and Zukerman are vocal about the moral imperative to grow the company because of the superior care they provide older adults. It is an opinion shared by the industry. In 2017 Family & Nursing Care was recognized as one of the top two best private duty home care agencies nationwide (out of 26,000+) by DecisionHealth™.
