Eric Malkin, owner of Homewatch CareGivers serving Beachwood, Ohio was inspired to start his business in 2006 after a dear aunt was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.Eric has an MBA and earned a Certified Senior Advisor (CSA) designation, which shows that he is competent and knowledgeable about working with seniors. “I am ultimately responsible for every caregiver that comes into your home and for the care that is delivered to each of our families,” he says. “We do our best, through our client management model, to personally meet with each of our clients to understand their needs and how we can be of help.”Eric, whose background is in finance, takes his work with his clients seriously and has been trained in CPR and First Aid.
In an effort to create a unique career path for his caregivers, Eric formed a second company called CEFA (Community Employment For All) that finds individuals with developmental disabilities jobs and supports them through independence in the work place.This northeastern Ohio native embraces golf in summer, “survives” winters by playing tennis and racquetball (“Though I wouldn’t miss the winters, I love this city and marvel at all that is has to offer,” Eric adds), and passionately cheers on Cleveland teams.He is inspired by his work daily. “I love to reward our caregivers and be part of a perfect match when a caregiver practically becomes part of our client’s family,” Eric says.
