Robert Weink
CEO/Founder

Robert Weink, the founder and President of Midwest Family Care, learned all about caregiving as a kid. He spent time with older adults at the hospital where his mother provided nursing care and community education. Later, he had a life-changing experience working with an older man with Parkinson's disease, and this interaction advanced his commitment. Robert's vision for Midwest Family Care is to see a world where care is a calling, not just a business.
