Taking care of an elderly person can be an overwhelming task. It has to be done with passion and full dedication. I was very fortunate to talk with Michael San Juan who has committed his life to serving the seniors. He is the Executive Director of Always Best Care of Arlington that provides multiple options for seniors including an assisted living finder/referral services, in-home care and remote safety monitoring/remote home automation. Michael is a licensed healthcare professional and his passion to elderly healthcare has helped him in his role as the Executive Director. He’s been in the industry of helping the elders for 28 years and has mastered the field of providing healthcare.
Also, setting a long-term goal is one of the important things to remember. For instance, Michael goal is to help the elderly population. The elderly population is growing and they need help, the service he provides through healthcare is long term care.
For Michael, it’s also important to practice what he preaches. Being a health care provider, he realizes how important it has been to incorporate healthy habits in his life. As a healthy CEO, Michael manage to minimize alcohol consumption, quit smoking and leading an example to his clients and employees. His advice to young entrepreneurs, “Make sure to cover yourself, get a life insurance with a long-term care rider, because you’re not forever young.”
