At Home Nursing Care salutes our caregivers becoming family practice physicians.
In our Culver City At Home Nursing Care branch, we held a breakfast send-off celebration to recognize four wonderful and dedicated caregivers who are well on their way to becoming family practice physicians.
Yoel is a physician from Cuba who immigrated to the United States under a special visa for Cuban professionals. He and his wife, Alibet, also a physician from Cuba, took positions as caregivers with At Home Nursing Care while they attended a special UCLA program for foreign doctors.
Both were licensed physicians in Cuba, but they needed to attend trainings and finish a credentialing program here in the United States.
Yoel’s 92 year old client was thrilled when he heard Yoel had been accepted into a Family Medicine Residency outside of Bakersfield, even though it means losing the future doctor as a caregiver.
“He is wonderful,” said 92 year old Charles, “he will make an excellent doctor for people like me.” (We found a wonderful new caregiver for Charles, but Yoel will be missed!)
Alibet, who is finishing her credentialing and has been taking English lessons since she first began working with At Home Nursing Care nearly 2 years ago, is hoping to also start a residency program near her husband. She provided 24/7 care to an elderly dementia client and had great reviews. The couple is moving from Culver City to Hanford, North of Bakersfield.
“It’s amazing to get these educated and dedicated future doctors and have them work inside the homes of clients they will someday serve medically. It gives them valuable perspective that will improve care in general,” said Adriana Beischl, District Manager for the At Home Nursing Care Culver City Office.
Yoel and Alibet have already referred more of their colleagues to apply with At Home Nursing Care. We are honored to have their colleages join us and we wish Yoel, Alibet, and their colleages best wishes and good luck!
