How did you get started in this business? What inspired you to start this business?
It always inspired me to help other people who need assistance and are less fortunate then we are. It is in our religion and in our manta to do good. That is why Americare is such a great fit for us.

How long did it take for you to become profitable?
We got the business off the ground relatively quickly. We have very hard working staff that is dedicated and passionate towards helping others. Thanks to these goals and culture for our company we had no issue being profitable by the end of our first full year in business.
When you were starting out, was there ever a time you doubted it would work? If so, how did you handle that?
We have some of the best trained medical professionals in the world here in New York. This helps incredibly as we cover and service for different health management programs such as Diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, Parkinsons, stroke vitcims, dementia, depression, insomnia, and a whole slew of therapy services.
What is the toughest decision you’ve had to make in the last few months?
We wanted to find the best way to offer the free trips to the Jewish Childrens museum in Brooklyn, New York where we let anybody accompany a grandparent to the museum in exchange for us offering a 15% discount on their trip. We want to let the region know about our good deeds and how we strive to bring family closer together.
What do you think it is that makes you successful?
Hard work and sensibility. Giving back is the most enriching part of my day and I enjoy that the most. Doing what is good for others and the rest follows.
What has been your most satisfying moment in business?
Working because I want to and I enjoy helping the community not because I need to work to pay the bills.
