    Jon opened Ohio’s first Homewatch CareGivers in 2003. He has a passion for helping others and has always looked for new and innovative ways to be able to provide help for those who need it. In addition to providing care to the elderly and people with physical disabilities, Jon and his staff have helped hundreds of individuals with developmental disabilities as well. As the owner, Jon oversees the role of his staff and caregivers and constantly provides valuable feedback. Jon is very active in his local community and has worked with the media and his congressmen to ensure that people with disabilities are represented and treated fairly. In 2015, Jon published his first book entitled “Secrets No One will Ever Tell You about Finding a Caregiver for Your Loved One.” (Click below to view a copy of Jon’s book in Kindle format).

    I was blessed with a heart and love for elderly people, and this is where I am happiest. Knowing that I made someone’s day brighter, happier, and easier is what makes me smile at the end of the day.

    I was a Medical assistant and provided private care before starting with Homewatch CareGivers in 2005. I have been working at Homewatch CareGivers for many years and started out as a Caregiver. I then worked my way up to a House Manager and currently work in the office managing dozens of CareGivers. As I have been in their position, I have a better understanding of their needs and can ensure they are being met.

    I review monthly documentation to ensure the proper plans are being implemented. I also perform home visits, and schedule caregivers for our family members. In addition to this, I organize and coordinate administrative duties and office procedures.

    I truly enjoy helping people find the care they need for themselves or loved ones to help improve their quality of life and make life easier for them. I was a caregiver for 15 years for various agencies, and I was also an independent provider. I am currently a Program Manager with Homewatch CareGivers and supervise, hire and train caregivers for our family members. I also go out and meet any potential family members face to face and explain the countless benefits our company can provide them with if they choose us, and I also help them get started if they choose us as their provider.

    I enjoy watching my favorite NFL and NBA sports teams, love playing basketball and spending time with my amazing family and pets.
