Geriatrics & Memory Care...
A Family Passion
TLC is owned & operated by Dora Valentin where she lives with her family. Dora has worked closely with Dr. McGivney, the founder & pioneer of TLC on many senior advocacy projects and legislative agendas over the years. Dora & Dr. McGivney have worked well together because of their shared passion and vision for senior care issues and rights. Dora is grateful for the many opportunities she has had over the years to work with and learn from Dr McGivney in his role as a Medical Doctor and Advisor and looks forward to continuing to work with Dr. McGivney in the future.
Strong Values and Ethics
Health care has become disjointed & overspecialized. It seems this new system offers little continuity of care and is lacking in good old-fashioned values and ethics. Seeing a different doctor, nurse, or caregiver each time is frustrating & confusing. It decreases the effectiveness of care & health outcomes.
Communication between patients, families & health care providers has seemingly disappeared. I have experienced the frustrations of the health care system, not only professionally, interacting with patients, families & providers, but also personally, caring for parents & residents during their illnesses. Even with my long term care experience, it can be difficult to navigate the health system.
I understand how difficult it is to be a caregiver. My experiences, as a direct caregiver, owning & managing care homes has deepened my commitment and values to providing high quality senior care. All of my experiences have led me on the path to TLC. A place where my staff and I can provide a happy, safe, loving, family-like environment for our residents & their families.
