Hi I’m Jim Nowak, founder of Family First Caregivers Inc. I would like to tell you about myself, and why I am so passionate about caregiving. It’s my hope that this message strengthens our connection. Thank you for allowing us into your homes and entrusting us with the care of your loved ones.  

About Jim

Dear Neighbor

As the Family First Caregivers founder, I believe in family and community. My wife Tammy and I live in North Royalton, along with our daughter Mandi, her husband Joe and their son Ben. We also have a son, Matt, who recently married his lovely wife Alyssa and they live in Columbus.  Just to add to our love of all things local, both my wife and me are fellow Holy Name graduates: class of 1984 and 1987,  go Namers!

As for my passion to help people, I started shortly after my mother, Marlene, passed away. Before Mom moved on she told me, “make a difference in someone’s life and make yourself happy doing it.”  So I left my job in corporate America and started a caregiving career in Strongsville, Ohio. I wanted to make a real impact; so instead of buying a franchise, I decided to run a locally owned and operated family business. I guarantee you will quickly see the difference. At FFC we  know the needs of our seniors and their families. Many of you are working full-time jobs, raising children and helping parents –simultaneously. I’ve been there. I tried being everywhere at once -and it doesn’t work.  Our Caregivers help bridge that gap and truly love their work. I am lucky to have them on my team.

Our office staff also goes the extra mile every day. Our new Coordinator Cyndi works incredibly hard and goes out of her way to match the right Family with the right Caregiver. Meanwhile our Office Manager, Debi Lubinski, does all of our billing right here in our Strongsville  office.  She is probably the sweetest person you will ever speak with -really.

Keeping our loved ones safe and happy can be a challenging task. We promise to take care of your parents’ needs and to make them feel special; because they are –and so are you. Let Family First Caregivers help ease your worries by providing your loved ones with support, companionship and most of all care.  Wishing you and your loved ones all the best in life.
