About Our Staff
Flora Umukoro – Co-Owner & Vice President
Flora is a dedicated and highly driven Leadership and Management graduate, and also hold a Masters degree in Organization Leadership with a major in Human Resource Management. Flora is a member of Society for Human Resource Management of America (SHRM), a member of American Association of Professional Women (AAPW), and a member of California Federation of Business and Professional Women (CFBPW).
Flora developed a flair for helping and giving the aged the love and attention they deserve through one of the leadership courses she attended in college, “Developing Leadership, Knowledge, and Skills to address the Challenges and Opportunities of a Diverse Aging Society”, by American Society of Aging (ASA). This led her into establishing a home care agency that could show love and peace of mind to the aging seniors in the society, since many elderly people have no one to care and love them during this transition in their lives.
Flora believes that empowering seniors through a comprehensive senior support system like Home Care Assistance will definitely change the way the seniors age because having someone help with basic tasks makes all the difference between a comfortable easy life and a tiring painful one. Therefore, providing these seniors with quality care at home will enable them age gracefully and live a happier and healthier life.
