As 1Heart Caregiver Services® closes the 2nd quarter of the year it has proven its continuing growth as a Master Franchisor. 1Heart Caregiver Services® welcomed its next Franchisee, 1Heart Caregiver Services® Simi Valley.
On June 17th, the Simi Valley Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors headed by Keith Mashburn, Pam Campeau, field representative of the California State Assembly and notable guests enjoyed the Ribbon Cutting and grand opening celebration of 1Heart Caregiver Services® Simi Valley located at 1985 Yosemite Ave.
Guest of honor, Simi Valley Mayor Bob Huber, owner and hosts Jerome Viray, Arnold Bunye together with their partners, Ronald Bunye and Catherine Chin jump-started the event by cutting the ribbon to officially open the 1Heart office and training facility. Mr. Viray and Mr. Bunye have also been successfully managing Divine Home Health Agency in the area for the past three years.
Also present in the event was 1Heart Caregiver Services’® Director of Business & Franchise Development, Randy Clarito and CEO, Belina Tagarao who congratulated the 1Heart Caregiver Services® Simi Valley team for the successful launch of their franchise office.
“What struck me with this group is that they attribute their success to their passion for what they do — taking care of the healthcare needs of the senior community. They’re not purely profit- minded. They’re enthusiastic about the business not only because they see it as being viable but they also have the right motivation — compassion for the seniors who need help and the eagerness to provide peace of mind to the families. Their team’s knowledge, training, and experience in healthcare gives them an edge and I am glad they’re now going to provide in-home quality care the 1Heart way.” says Belina Tagarao.
The board of directors of 1Heart Caregiver Services Simi Valley comprise of highly experienced individuals in the home care industry – Jerome Viray (who holds degrees in both Social Sciences and Behavioral Studies), Arnold Bunye BSN RN who has been in the profession since 1995, Ronald Bunye (Med Tech by profession and licensed RFCE Administrator) and Catherine Chin, Registered Physical Therapist for more than 20 years. They all have been trained and have worked in hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, home health agencies, and different home care facilities before venturing into in-home caregiving services.
The Simi Valley team strongly consider healthcare and caregiving as a partnership between the patient, their families and the healthcare professionals. They believe in the passion and the heart of caring for the elderly.
” We are very excited and honored to be able to bring the kind of quality care that 1Heart promises closer to the Senior community here in Simi Valley. We joined the 1Heart franchise not only because of their proven expertise but also because their vision of how caregiving should be is aligned with the values we stand for, and we would like to grow with them as 1Family, 1Team, 1Heart.”, says Jerome Viray.
“The fruits of our long hard work are paying off.” says Randy Clarito. “I’m very pleased to say that out of all the challenges we had in the past and the stiff competition we have in this industry, 1Heart Caregiver Services® has remained a strong, solid brand and a growing in-home care franchise.”
