This month we proudly introduce you to another one of our very talented San Diego caregivers. Anita Olson was nominated as our July 2015 San Diego Caregiver of the Month! We put together a brief interview with Anita to share how she became a caregiver and what she loves most about her profession.
One of the most important jobs we have as care managers at Grace Care Management is to find the best referrals for our clients to support their health care needs and goals. Working with many people diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, Minds in Motion (MIMO) is one of those programs we were excited to come across and introduce to you. Founded by Jim Paterniti and Lester Cohen, Minds in Motion is bringing education, support and empowerment to the local community and all free-of-charge. Both Jim and Lester were diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and so their program was designed through first hand experience, with a deep passion for helping others.
We are both proud and excited to welcome our newest Grace Care Management employee, Christine Lucus! Christine comes from having years of experience working with elders in the community and at home. Her diverse professional background brings a unique perspective as she transitions as our new Office Manager. We hope you enjoy her recent interview. Welcome to the Grace Care Management team Christine!
As care managers, we are always looking for the best therapies and professionals to help our clients. We have been interested in what used to be called “alternative medicine” for a very long time. It is now more often called “integrative medicine.” From massage and chiropractic to acupuncture and more, these “non-medical” interventions always seemed to address important aspects of our health that typically are overlooked or minimized in Western medicine. It is a wonderful shift that many health systems and health insurances are now recognizing the value of integrative medicine and complimentary alternative medicine, better known as “CAM.”
This month we proudly introduce you to another one of our very talented San Diego caregivers. Maribel Larios was nominated as our May 2015 caregiver of the month! We sat down with Maribel to find out more about her passion caring for others.
The entire Grace Care Management team thanks you Maribel for all that you do for our clients!
Grace Care is pleased to feature Dr. Michael Lobatz, M.D. of Scripps Encinitas Rehabilitation Center this month. We have been honored to work closely with Dr. Lobatz and his patients for many years. He is one of those physicians who because of a combination of intelligence and heart, brings a deep humanity to his work. Dr. Lobatz exemplifies what so many of us hope to find in a trusted medical professional.
We’ve paraphrased here the Physician’s Oath of Maimonides which he embodies so well: “Inspire me with the love for my art and for thy creatures. In the sufferer let me see only the human being.”
This month we congratulate San Diego caregiver Leslie Sandoval for her nomination as our Caregiver of the Month! We are glad that Leslie recently joined Grace Care Management’s team of wonderful caregivers and in a short time she has proven to be someone special. This mom has a true passion when it comes to caring for others and it shows in all that she does.
Keep up the great work Leslie and thank you for all you do! Now, we would like to share her recent interview.
With the rise of chronic disease, prescription medications and an overly complicated medical system, functional medicine is becoming more and more sought after by patients seeking a more holistic approach to healing. Dr. Borrego’s approach to medical care is making a huge impact on the quality of life for many San Diego residents and so we are thrilled for the opportunity to introduce you to her practice.
Grace Care Management is pleased to highlight Neuropsychologist Dr. Mark McDonough this month. Neuropsychology is a special profession that focuses on brain functioning and can have significant outcomes for patients. We thank Dr. McDonough for taking the time to educate us about his practice and the benefits of neuropsychology. We hope you enjoy his interview!
This month we recognize another wonderful member of our staff and introduce you to caregiver Jessica Hernandez. She is our February 2015 Caregiver of the Month! Jessica’s energy and outlook on life is infectious and we are grateful to have her on our San Diego caregiver team. She spreads warmth and kindness to everyone she works with, which is what makes her so special.
