What role does your nominee have in senior care and senior care issues?
Gina is a full time caregiver for her mother who has Alzheimer's disease and is the Community Outreach Specialist for the Alzheimer's Association, Orange County Chapter. Gina has worked in outreach for over 10 years serving the entire county of Orange, Latin community, interfaith community, and medical professionals. When she is not at work, she is caring for her mom - sometimes that means split shifts to ensure her mom is cared for.


Why should this person be nominated
Gina's love, passion, and dedciation are why she deserves this award. Caring for her mother who has Alzheimer's disease, Gina looks for the positives in every aspect of being a family caregiver. She goes above and beyond to ensure her mother is comfortable, safe, cared for, and always makes sure that her mother knows that she is loved. In between her caregiving hours, Gina spends her time reaching out to families affected by this disease and connecting them with the Alzheimer's Association, Orange County Chapter. Gina shares her love and passion all over Orange County, informing families of the free programs & services provided by the Alzheimer's Association. She even finds the time to engage with OC elected officials, sharing with them the emotional and fincancial impact that Alzheimer's disease has on families. Gina is both an advocate and a caregiver. For those reasons, I am nominating Gina Moran.
