Garden City, NY (PRWEB) September 18, 2012
Members and guests of the NAPW Orange County, CA Local Chapter gathered on August 26th for a professional networking meeting at Cosi, a popular restaurant located at 901 South Coast Drive in Costa Mesa. This month’s guest speaker was Jamie Sanderson, CSA Community Relations Coordinator and Independent Franchise Owner of BrightStar Life Care & Kid Care, a company that helps families care for loved ones by providing compassionate, expert in-home care.
Orange County Local Chapter President Petra Petry, Ph.D., kicked off the noon meeting by welcoming everyone to the restaurant. Cosi was a replacement venue when there was a last-minute cancellation of the original meeting place.
“It was a perfect venue to start with our meeting, get to know each other, focus on lunch and networking, and learning about in-home services from guest speaker Jamie Sanderson,” said Petra.
Members and guests were also treated to an informative presentation by guest speaker Jamie Sanderson. She talked about how in-home services accompanied by subtle smiles and long talks in the difficult times can make a big difference for the healing process of patients and the quality of their life.
“Showing kindness and compassion, while providing the right level of care; it’s a good feeling,” said Jamie.
Jamie explained that the flexible care programs BrightStar offers vary from hourly to live-in, as well as night and respite accommodation. She also talked about the private duty homecare buyer’s guide; this details how to do your homework before interviewing with an agency. Jamie gave members and guests some very helpful hints to screen the private caregivers and invited them to inquire about her seniors or infant post-surgery services.
