Michael Ibarra: A Heart that Beats for Seniors
Michael started working with seniors as a 17-year-old through his high school’s DECA program. Noticing his steadfast compassion with residents, his employer offered to pay his tuition for caregiving coursework. He joined MorningStar’s Reflections staff with a year’s experience as a caregiver for the memory impaired.
“Memory Care residents just have this natural welcoming nature to them, which I thoroughly enjoy,” he remarks. His compassion is borne, in part, from losing his own grandmother to dementia.
After four months, Michael began serving in Life Enrichment. Today he leads activities for the entire community. In this role, he can spend even more time with residents and know each one even better, which he loves.
Young as he is, Michael feels a very strong connection with seniors. “I like to make them feel important—because they are.”
