Eve will be working in our Ramona office to help support our caregivers and clients with their scheduling needs. She also serves as our After Hours Scheduling Coordinator for when caregiver support is needed outside of normal business hours. Eve comes to us with immense experience and is a wonderful addition to our team.
Evelyn Thurston, better known as “Eve”, was born, raised and educated in the Hannover area of West Germany. As an adult, Eve immigrated to the United States with her American husband who was enlisted in the Army as an Officer. They had two daughters together, who later became successful mothers themselves. After many years as an Officer’s wife, she pursued her dream job as a Flight Attendant for thirteen years.
Eve later moved to California and shifted careers, starting to work in the home care industry in 2001. She gained excellent experience over the years in customer service, staffing and scheduling in an office setting. Eve has worked in this field ever since, being promoted as a Staffing Director/Care Manager at her last position and also assisting with marketing functions.
Eve took time out from working in the office to take care of her mom who passed away in 2012. The time she spent with her mom helped strengthen Eve’s calling for caring for others. She was reminded again how much she enjoys every part of elder care, especially her interactions with clients directly. Eve’s experiences encouraged her to stay in the home care field and that is when Grace Care was fortunate enough to find her.
As our new team member, Eve plays a critical role in helping us with staffing and on call caregiver support. She knows how important the scheduling function is and so does a wonderful job in helping Grace Care’s clients get the care in place they need, when they need it. Eve understands that each caregiver and client is unique and her years of experience make her skilled at creating successful customized care teams.
Grace Care is excited to have Eve Thurston as our new Scheduling Coordinator. You may hear her voice the next time you call us at the office, so be sure to extend a warm welcome!
