Family has always been the most important part of Graciela Pulido’s life. The Columbian-born mother of two values every minute spent with her loved ones and extends considerable kindness to everyone fortunate enough to be part of her family. However, the Rancho Santa Margarita resident’s family circle goes far beyond her blood relatives and encompasses the many special seniors she cares for at Rancho Santa Margarita’s Park Terrace senior living facility.
Pulido is being honored as the July recipient of Fairhaven’s Oliver Halsell Care Award. Fairhaven, an Orange County mortuary and memorial park with locations in Santa Ana and Mission Viejo, created the recognition program in 2012 to pay tribute to individuals who have demonstrated exceptional care in their profession, community and the world at large.
As a resident assistant, Pulido cares for a group of 10-15 residents each day, attending to any and all needs that arise from the time they awake in the morning to when they retire at the end of the day. Her job is to help them live their daily lives in the most comfortable and healthy way possible.
Pulido will be honored at Fairhaven’s Oliver Halsell Care Awards banquet in the fall at Fairhaven’s Mission Viejo location. The banquet honors a year’s worth of achievements among the local community. Additionally, Fairhaven will make a donation to Vida Abundante Church in her honor.
