Our Story

A Local Need, A Loving Nurse

A community in need leads to a transformation of care.

In 1994, Miriam Sternberg was a hospital nurse in New York City with a growing family. As an immigrant from Moscow, she saw a void in care for many of those aging around her. Miriam and her first team of friends sought to fill that void, and together became the start of Caring Professionals.

Word of mouth about Caring Professionals spread in the Russian-speaking and Slavic communities. Our personal understanding of Eastern European populations, combined with a reputation of quality care, fueled initial growth. It wasn’t long before word spread further, and soon home care was requested for other communities, and in other languages.

We work to support all lifestyles, personal needs and preferences

Caring Professionals now cares for over 5,000 patients within the diverse communities of New York, offering services in over ten languages. We work to support all lifestyles, personal needs, and preferences. Our caregivers are trained to work with seniors, people with disabilities, holocaust survivors, veterans, and more. And we are continually looking for more communities to serve! If you have a language or other need not currently listed, please reach out to us to see how we can help.
