Monthly our Claremont Place residents, staff, and family members recognize a team member for Starfish of the month.
August 2017 Starfish Recipient: Anayansi Ruiz
Born and raised in Panama, Anayansi Ruiz met and married her husband and soon after followed him on their shared journey to the United States. Settling in New Jersey in 1989, the two of them set up a household and welcomed a daughter. It was this daughter and her dream to live in California that resulted in Anayansi and her husband relocating to California in January 2017. Anayansi’s daughter had been offered a position in Administration at Children’s Hospital LA in 2015. Wanting to remain close, it was easy to see that a move to the West Coast was meant to be for Anayansi and her husband, even more so when a SoCal position in his company opened along with an offer of a relocation plan. One short month after their arrival, we were fortunate to have had Anayansi see a job posting online for a caregiver position here at Claremont Place. With prior caregiving experience from her years in New Jersey and a down to earth, easy to talk to personality, there was a unanimous decision to offer her a position. Anayansi and her husband’s search for their new permanent home has recently ended as they settled into their new home in mid-July. Anayansi knows that family is important and the work required to relocate has been well worth the effort. We are so happy that she is part of the Claremont Place family. She is an excellent caregiver and a great team member. She is easy to talk with, professional and not easily flustered. She makes a difference every day!
