As a family owned and operated facility our residents can expect to have a very personal and interactive experience. We are very involved daily and have a vested interest and a genuine concern for our residents. We have the ability to make on the spot decisions leading to faster and better care.
Our staff are mostly bilingual (English/Spanish) speaking.
After graduating from Keiser University as a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant, I worked at the Florida Institute for Neurological Rehabilitation where I became a Certified Brain Injury Specialist. During my tenure, I worked with patients with traumatic brain injuries , spinal cord injuries, strokes along with other neurological conditions. I also participated in home assessments where I recommended appropriate environmental modifications to maximize patient independence and safety in their own home.
In recent years, I have worked for a five-star rated agency and I was an integral part of the skilled clinical team in providing home health services. This has given me the opportunity to treat patients in a wide spectrum of settings ranging from their private residence to assisted living, independent living and memory care. My primary role was to educate and train patients, families, and caregivers on safety techniques during transfers and activities of daily living, how to safely use adaptive or durable medical equipment, as well as to educate them on home exercise programs, pain management, energy conservation and fall prevention techniques to improve their quality of life.
My background in therapy enables me to modify exercises and activities based on the physical or cognitive limitations of the resident, as well as ensure their utmost safety and maximize their independence. I have enjoyed working in all the various settings throughout my career but I have been truly inspired and became passionate for assisted living because I know that I can make a huge difference in my resident’s quality of life. My personal goal is to treat them with love, care, respect and dedication that they always deserve.
