We sat down with Cierra Pro, as she told us about her mom, Juanita Pro, Director of Case Management at CaraVita, who has been with the company for 15 years. Here’s what Cierra Pro had to say:
What inspired you to work in this industry?
Watching my mom care selflessly all her life for others has inspired me to want to follow in her footsteps. I want to be able to provide the comfort I have watched her give to so many others in their time of need. I have watched her care for my great grandmother, grandfather, grandmother, and great aunt during some of their worst moments and the strength, attentiveness, and love she gives so effortlessly has inspired me countless times and continues to every day.
What is one story you remember about your mom’s passion for caring for seniors?
My mom had a friend who was an elderly adult; her name was Louise, but “Weezie” is what we called her. She used to go pick her up for the weekend, bring her to our house, fix her hair and do her nails, and sit and drink coffee with her. I remember even going to her house to spend the night with her multiple times! We would sit, talk, and watch movies together. To see how happy something so simple that my mom did for Louise really influenced me! It doesn’t take much to make someone feel cared for and appreciated. My mother was lucky enough to be her by side as she passed away, just as I know “Weezie” would have wanted it. The friendship they shared was extraordinary.
How has your mom’s passion impacted you?
My mother’s passion for caring has taught me to care for others without judgment. Her passion is what drove me to want to do this in life. If it were not for her teaching me how important it is to provide care for those who can’t help themselves, I would not have the outlook on life as I do today.
What is so special about getting to work alongside your mom each day?
Working with my mother is so special to me because I have already learned so much about this industry and what it takes to be an advocate from her growing up, and now I get to keep learning and experiencing new situations all with her guidance. I feel very blessed to get to work alongside her each day!
What has your mom taught you that impacts your daily life?
My mom has always taught me to lead with my heart, and do what feels right. Caring for others and advocating gives me such gratitude. I am fortunate to have such a loving mother, and I couldn’t be more thankful to have all the memories together that we do!
We want to thank Cierra for spending the time to share some moments in her life with our readers. CaraVita Home Care is proud to share our staff’s family memories, and we hope that everyone reading has a happy Mother’s Day with their family!
