Foothill Retirement

Social isolation and boredom have been nagging problems for nearly everyone during the pandemic, especially for residents in long term care facilities. We are grateful to our newest HealthCap Hero, Jocelyn Pacheco, for doing her best to solve this problem by keeping her residents engaged and in high spirits. Jocelyn has been actively engaging her residents with activities every day, and helping them connect with loved ones in new ways despite limited visitation. Foothill Retirement values her commitment to her residents and wanted to give her a shout out for her hard work and dedication to her team:

“Our Activity Director Jocelyn Pacheco is doing a very tremendous job of uplifting the residents’ spirits and morale, especially during these trying times. She is always going the extra mile by making sure the residents are engaged in doing daily activities and have open communication with all their loved ones.”
