We were founded in 1966 as a part of what was the Empire Health Services. We began then to provide private duty services (home care) and grew to provide skilled nursing and therapy services. In 2001 EHS sold Family Home Care to Michael Nowling who continued the legacy of being a locally owned and operated company in our area. Under Nowling's leadership, Family Home Care grew and expanded to North Idaho and the Palouse region. FHC also began to offer Hospice services in 2006. FHC became widely recognized as a leader for clinical outcomes, employee satisfaction, and philanthropic contribution to the community.
In August 2012, Family Home Care sold the Medicare Certified Home Health department, Hospice Department, and Housecalls Primary Care department to Gentiva Healthcare Services. This change left half of the employees and the home care division still with Family Home Care.
In March, 2013, Nowling sold the remainder of Family Home Care to the Wiberg Family. Jeff Wiberg had been with the company for 5 years and had always had a passion and interest for Home Care. The Wibergs now continue the legacy of continuing to be a locally owned and operated, family business serving the area. The Wiberg's plan to continue that legacy into the future and continue to provide the best-in-class care to our clients in our community.
