Laura Belluomini says the idea to start her own home health-care business grew out of a conversation her husband, Joe, had several years ago while riding the ferry home to Tiburon from San Francisco.

Joe was chatting with a friend who told him about the difficulties he was having finding care for his aging mother, who lived with him in Tiburon and required constant care. Joe immediately thought of his wife, a longtime nurse who was working at the University of California at San Francisco at the time but was growing tired of the commute and demanding schedule. After meeting the family, Belluomini was hired to care for the woman.

“I just knew when I met this woman, helping keep her in her home in Tiburon, that I just wanted to be able to help people do that, to age in place and not have to go into a nursing home, or if they are in a nursing home, to get even better care,” says Belluomini, who in 2016 founded Marin Home Care to provide both non-medical care and skilled nursing services to older adults.

The business, which operates out of the Maritime Center and now boasts more than 100 caregivers serving about 50 clients in Southern Marin, has been named the Tiburon Peninsula Chamber of Commerce’s 2023 Business of the Year.
