About Family & Nursing Care
It was Sandy Kursban’s close relationship with her grandparents growing up that inspired her to dedicate her life to promoting the well-being of aging adults. She witnessed first-hand how hard it became for her grandfather to live on his own. Nobody wanted to see him go to a “convalescent home” (the name for nursing homes at the time), and the concept of assisted-living had yet to be introduced. The only other option was for him to move in with family members. But back in 1968, many women were entering the workforce, leaving fewer and fewer family members to fill the traditional Caregiver role. The world was changing and a new industry was born; Sandy helped to pioneer the aging-in-place revolution.
Family & Nursing Care was founded in 1968 in Silver Spring, Maryland to realize Sandy’s vision: to give people the option of aging in place in their homes by having the support of experienced Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) Caregivers who could assist with activities of daily life, companionship, and also skilled nursing care through Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) and Registered Nurses (RNs).
Today, Family & Nursing Care is one of the oldest, largest, and most well-respected resources for home care services in the Silver Spring, Maryland and Washington, DC region. Dedicated to being the top resource for compassionate, progressive, and reliable home care, Family & Nursing Care continues to break barriers and set benchmarks for the home care industry. After all, life comes full circle; family Caregivers become care receivers and vice versa. We continue to seek new ways to support clients, Caregivers, families, and industry partners on this journey. We continue to round out our circle of care.
The Legacy Continues
Today, Sandy’s son and daughter help run the company. Neal Kursban is now CEO of Family & Nursing Care in Silver Spring, Maryland. Mindy Kursban is the company’s attorney. What’s more, we are a family in ways that go beyond our own family tree. We are a close-knit group of people, many of whom have worked together for years and years. More than 15 of our office staff have worked at the company for 10+ years.
One of the remarkable things about Sandy Kursban is that, since the very beginning in 1968, she has always been ahead of the curve for the entire home care industry. That passion for growth, innovation, and change is shared by all of us at Family & Nursing Care. We use our extensive experience in caring for older adults as a foundation for looking ahead to what is next. Sandy revolutionized the industry and, in many ways, pioneered the industry.
