FirstLight franchisee David Bonacci and Executive Director of Client Care Services Gina Kaurich are making a difference in their communities by offering professional, non-medical homecare services centered around the clients they serve.
This week, Gina Kaurich of Cincinnati, Ohio shared her journey into the home care industry during an exclusive interview with SeniorHomes.com.
Her first experience in the healthcare industry as a volunteer Candy Striper opened her eyes to client needs and the importance of educating families. These attributes encouraged Kaurich to pursue a career in medical care. She has more than 35 years experience as a registered nurse and is also credentialed as a professional geriatric care manager and certified master coach and trainer. Furthermore, her background as a clinical administrator for a hospital system, director of nursing in a continuing care community and vice president of clinical operations in home care, provided her with the necessary tools to become a successful business owner.
In her interview, Kaurich provides helpful tips for families considering in-home care services. It can be difficult to convince someone close to you, such as a family member, that they need additional help. Kaurich addresses some concerns associated with resistance while offering the benefits to in-home services.
