The Superstar Support Staff of Casa Allegra
Casa Allegra is staffed with some of the hardest working, most dedicated and caring staff in the home Healthcare industry. Many of our workers go above and beyond to assist our folks and the community at large.
One example is Blanca Molina. From day one, Blanca Molina has shown she has the compassion and work ethic to be an asset for CACS. She is punctual, polite and great with Larry. They frequently go walking around the neighborhood. She always seems to know what to do with Larry, even during these difficult times.
Asked where she learned to care for people, she told us, "I care for people as if they are my own family member." And you can really tell how much Larry’s health and happiness mean to her by the way she interacts with him. Larry always voices how Blanca is always there to support him. She is great at facilitating what is important to and important for Larry.
She has been with Casa Allegra going on 21 years now, and we have been lucky to have her every step of the way. Recently, she has been assisting Larry to stay connected with loved ones through Zoom and Face-time. Larry loves to connect and engage with people. He is known to travel throughout the bay area taking public transportation independently. On one occasion, he was seen on TV walking through the Bart while the local news was doing a segment. Blanca understands how important it is for Larry to be out in the community. She has been great at teaching Larry social distancing and ways to still stay connected through modern technology. What a great story!
Thank you, Blanca Molina, for all you continue to do, from everyone at CACS! Keep up the great work!
Lastly, we would like to take the time to thank each and every one of the parents, support staff and family members that have made face masks for CACS. These masks have been a great help, and could not come at a more important time. CACS is dedicated to maintaining a safe environment for our clients and caretakers, and all PPE donations are beyond helpful.
A big Mahalo goes out to Betty & Nick Lituanio, Jeanette Bruciati, Stacia, Steve, & Celia Allen, Tina & David Lambert, Maryann Caperna Saltonstall, and Eri & Eric Brevig and everyone else who made and donated masks for Casa Allegra. Your tireless efforts are noticed and much appreciated.
If you or anyone you know is interested in donating or making masks for CACS, please drop us a line and we will do our
best to figure out a way to make it as easy as possible to donate.
In the coming months, we plan to recognize more of the countless people that continue to make Casa Allegra a beacon of hope during these dark times. Feel free to call or email us if there is someone you'd like to see featured in a future Casa Allegra Community Corner.
Stay safe and Take Care.
