When asked why she began a home care business, Gerry Fioriglio, Owner of Family Caregivers says,
“One of the things I’ve carried with me throughout my career is that everybody has true worth and should be treated without judgment. Everyone deserves the right to receive care, no matter what their obstacles are.”
Family Caregivers Network is built on the mission that, despite any social, mental, or physical obstacle, we should treat everyone on the values they have lived by. Older individuals have done so much for their family, community, and country.They have lived full lives and the knowledge they have to offer is priceless. It is when we sit and listen to their wisdom and stories, that we gain value from them.
In November, we celebrate 20 years of caregiving to the aging residents of our community. Family Caregivers Network opened its doors to the public on November 13th, 2000. Owner, Gerry Fioriglio, was the main nurse and caregiver all while starting and operating the business. Within 6 months she employed 5 caregivers and serviced about 15 clients. In the last 20 years, Family Caregivers has grown to almost 100 employees, touched a countless number of lives, serving a 5-county region. Our caregivers have listened to thousands upon thousands of priceless stories passed down from our patients.
November also celebrates National Home Care Month and National Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, an appropriate time to honor the many essential healthcare workers who give so much to others, day in and day out. It goes without saying that the past 8 months have tested the emotional strength of every healthcare worker. Their selflessness and dedication to serving others does not go unnoticed and should be forever rewarded.
The front-line workers in home care are known as “caregivers”. At Family Caregivers Network it is our name, it is what we do. We are caregivers and we care for families. We would not be here today without the selfless and dedicated staff at Family Caregivers and the community of loved ones we serve. We are forever grateful to be given the opportunity to take care of your family.
