In addition, Family Bridges caregivers are carefully screened, including a comprehensive care giving assessment test, criminal background checks, fingerprinting and drug screening.

A main priority for us when looking for caregivers, is finding those with compassion. It is our commitment to you to send only the most qualified caregivers to your home.

Mike Garfunkel

Mike Garfunkel

President and Founder

Mike founded Family Bridges in 2003 when he was 40 years old because he needed a more emotionally satisfying career than what he felt he was getting by being a financial advisor.  It has been a decision he has never regretted. For the first year, he was actually maintaining both careers, but the appreciation he felt from clients, their family members and our employees made it evident that his heart was truly in in-home care.  An owner’s thoughts are never far from his company, but when he is not focusing on Family Bridges, he enjoys the company of his two older boys, out watching a sporting event or spending time exercising outdoors.
