When her grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, Ginger Thomas worked with her family to place her grandmother in a home. Throughout that emotionally difficult process, Thomas discovered her passion for working with seniors. Now, as a Senior Living Advisor at A Plan For Senior Care, she helps families daily find personalized care for their loved ones.
Thomas is being honored as the March recipient of Fairhaven’s Oliver Halsell Care Award. Fairhaven Memorial Park & Mortuary, with locations in Santa Ana and Mission Viejo, created the recognition program in 2012 to pay tribute each month to individuals who have demonstrated exceptional care in their profession, community and the world at large.
As a Senior Living Advisor, Thomas works directly with families as a resource in finding the right care for their loved ones. After interviewing a new family, Thomas considers the patient’s finances, current living situation and medical needs in order to provide a complete care plan. In matching seniors with care facilities, her main focus is ensuring each patient’s individual needs, as well as those of his or her family, will be personally addressed. This gives her ample opportunities to place more seniors in the compassionate hands of those who will provide them with the care they genuinely need and deserve.
Thomas will be honored at Fairhaven’s Oliver Halsell Care Awards banquet in November at Fairhaven’s Mission Viejo location. The banquet honors a year’s worth of achievements among the local community. Additionally, Fairhaven will make a donation to the American Heart Association in Thomas’ honor.
