Aurora Lopez enjoys taking care of seniors as she has already been working in home care for more than a decade. She treats seniors with utmost dignity and respect and makes sure that she is always in touch with the senior’s family to see to it that the senior’s life is happy and comfortable.
Although caregiving presents its challenges, she is glad that she belongs to a supportive 1Heart team. “Caregiving is not an easy job. It requires all your skills. It uses all your energy, knowledge and common sense. But doing it right often makes it less hard“. And she feels that the training she got from 1Heart through its 1Heart Caregiver University has provided her with the right tools in the caregiving profession. In fact, she feels that her caregiving skills have improved when she joined 1Heart. “As I further my caregiving expertise, 1Heart will be there for me to provide me with continuing education to keep me updated with current approaches. I also like the fact that 1Heart has case managers who from time to time guide all their caregivers and makes sure that they are in compliance with the rules and regulations.”
Her client, Nancy Rhein, has great things to say about her. “Aurora is a wonderful caregiver for our mother. She is gentle and kind with a very sweet nature. She is very attentive and anticipates our mom’s every need. She is devoted and skilled at her job. Our family is grateful to have Aurora in our lives and value her immensely. Our mother’s quality of life has been tremendously improved since Aurora came into her life.”
Aurora, like our previously featured caregivers, considers caregiving as a noble and financially rewarding profession. ”Like what I said earlier Caregiving has given me the sense of fulfillment amid the challenges especially whenever I am able to provide the best care for my client. At the same time, it has enabled me to help my husband send my two wonderful kids to college and provide financial assistance to my family in the Philippines. My family takes pride in my profession. In fact, my daughter will be joining me soon here in the US to train and work as a health care provider.”
Out of all the home care agencies she has worked for, she considers 1Heart Caregiver Services as the best. “I am indeed blessed to be a 1Heart caregiver. 1Heart treats everyone equally and professionally.”
