Santa Ana Resident Honored for Outstanding Work as a Caregiver
Georgina Vera is March/April recipient of Fairhaven's Oliver Halsell Care Award
By: HKA Marketing Communications
Vera has served as the Lead Medical Technician at The Groves of Tustin, an assisted and memory care living facility, for the past eight years. She began her career more than 20 years ago after a nurse supervisor encouraged her to become involved in the field due to her desire to help others. Vera always knew she had a calling to help others, this is why she chose to earn her Master's degree in Psychology from Universidad Autónoma del Estado de Morelos in Mexico. (https://www.uaem.mx/)
"Georgina always leads in such a kind and selfless manner. She's always going the extra mile for her residents and the company," said Fran Fyffe, Director of Sales and Marketing at The Groves of Tustin. "When someone calls in, she will always cover to ensure that the residents' needs are met. Not only is she an inspiration to her residents and their families, but all of our employees strive to be more like her on a daily basis."
Vera was nominated by Fyffe, who praised her for the countless hours she dedicates to residents and her loving nature for those in need.
"We take great pride in honoring Georgina for making a difference in the lives of others, especially when they need it most," said Ruth Velez, General Manager of Fairhaven Memorial Park & Mortuary. "The care industry is such a vital one and Fairhaven is proud to recognize those like Georgina who go above and beyond their call of duty for others."
In November 2019, Vera will be recognized with five other local honorees at the 7th annual Oliver Halsell Care Awards banquet. Additionally, Fairhaven will donate to Human Options in her name, a non-profit organization in Irvine that provides safety, healing, and a way forward for victims of domestic violence in Orange County.
Fairhaven is accepting nominations for the remainder of 2019 to recognize more outstanding individuals whose kindness and dedication to serving others proves inspirational. Fairhaven's Oliver Halsell Care Award winners are drawn from many fields including private care, hospice, social work, counseling, assisted living, medical providers, nursing, therapy, volunteer work and more.
