Congratulations Sandy Kursban!
(Silver Spring, Maryland – June 4, 2009)
Sandy Kursban, Founder and Chairman of Family & Nursing Care, was honored to receive the third annual Leadership in Aging Award presented by Episcopal Senior Ministries. The Leadership in Aging Award is given to honor outstanding service to older adults in the greater Washington, DC area and nationally. Since 1924, Episcopal Senior Ministries has been dedicated to helping older adults at all income levels live with independence and dignity.
In 1968, Sandy Kursban founded Family & Nursing Care to provide dedicated help for those aging adults who wish to remain independent, but cannot do so without assistance. Last year, Ms. Kursban helped establish the Family & Nursing Care Foundation, whose primary goals are to support community organizations providing low-income aging adults with home care, and professional home care training programs for nursing and nursing assistants.
Ms. Kursban shared, “I’m pleased and humbled to be honored in this way by ESM, an organization committed to so many of the same values and goals that I am. Our mutual efforts to help older adults live with the independence and dignity they deserve are more important today than ever before.”
Neal Kursban, Sandy’s son, who is President of the company, added, “I am proud of my mother who has accomplished so much over these past four decades. The legacy she has created has and will continue to serve the increasing needs of the aging community. ”
