When asked why Zach got into the home care business, he told us:
“By luck, good luck that is. I was 21 years old, a fresh graduate and looking for an entry level management position. I came across a pediatric home care company, and fell in love with helping
families who needed help in the home. My manager took me on a home visit on my second week of work, seeing a little girl with a tracheostomy and a home ventilator changed my life for the better. I knew right then that this business truly made an impact on people’s lives, I was hooked. Ten years and operating agencies across five states I couldn’t imagine doing anything else.”
Zach also shared his top three tips for family caregivers in South Florida:
- Seek help from others, you cannot do it all alone.
- It’s not selfish to take time for yourself, you need it.
- Learn, Learn, Learn. The more information you learn about your family member’s illness or diagnosis is key to being effective.
