Monthly our Claremont Place residents, staff, and family members recognize a team member for Starfish of the month.
March 2017 Starfish Recipient: Patty Anaya
Patty Anaya came to Claremont Place in November 2015 as a volunteer server for our Friends and Family Thanksgiving Feast. Her daughter Ashley had been volunteering through the fall from Claremont High School. After that introduction to Claremont Place, Patty became interested in pursuing a position with us and applied as a caregiver. Though Patty had no prior caregiving experience, her life experience raising 6 children over the past 20 years showed a woman with compassion and dedication which would translate well to our community.
Patty and her husband have three boys and three girls. They range in age from 25 to 14. Three of her kids have graduated and the other three are currently students at Claremont High School. She shared that she had tried part time work elsewhere 5 years ago but found that the timing was just not right for her family. It was more important for her to be a full time mom than a part time employee. Her dedication to family has produced the desired results in her children and they are her biggest blessing.
In addition to the kids, Patty and her husband share their home with their 2 dogs, Mo the husky and Rascal the poodle. Patty enjoys serving the residents and getting to know their preferences. She is patient and compassionate and we are so happy that she has expanded her family to include all of us!
