“You should see the smiles on our resident’s faces – wow, priceless! Our owners and wonderful residents thank you for making a difference in our facility and our resident’s lives.”

The Forget Me Not Foundation began with a simple question from a father while planning his son’s wedding. Mr. Robert Svet, Founder and CEO of The Eastridge Group of Staffing Companies, wondered, “How can we share the artistic and inspiring bouquets we used to celebrate the joyous occasion of my son’s marriage?” When he posed this question to his friend and business partner Bill Stone, the concept was so inspiring and meaningful that they decided to collaborate. And so, working with Mr. Stone, President of TheraStaff LLC, the seeds of the Foundation were planted.
As part of the Eastridge Group of Staffing Companies, TheraStaff specializes in providing Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapists to nursing homes, hospitals, outpatient clinics and other medical settings. Their therapists assist thousands of patients and care center residents each month by helping them maintain and improve the quality of their lives.
The match was immediately clear: The Eastridge Group and TheraStaff’s medical facility clients, and their patients and residents, were a great match for a worthy cause that would enhance the quality of life for thousands. Inspired by this idea, Robert Svet and Bill Stone set out to create the structure, resources and systems that would become The Forget Me Not Foundation.
