John Bonner OwnerJohn Bonner Owner
John Bonner, owner of Homewatch CareGivers of Richmond, has lived in Richmond for virtually his entire life. After locally attending Benedictine High School and graduating college right here in the Commonwealth, John began his career in sales.
After almost 20 years in medical device sales, John decided it was time for a change. “My career in medical device sales prepared me well for home health care ownership. I always served at the pleasure of the doctors, nurses, and ultimately the patients we all collectively served. That mindset transfers well in helping families take care of their loved ones during the times they need it the most.”
When at home, you can find John spending time with his family and friends, traveling, learning to cook, and enjoying college sports.
