Raya’s Paradise is a growing collection of highly-respected home-like residential-care facilities serving the entire Westside and Valley and soon in Orange County.
“Up until now we’ve been known for our quality care in cozy ‘homes,’” says Moti Michael Gamburd, owner-CEO.
In February, the company opened an 11-bed home on Sierra Bonita in L.A., near an already-existing facility, bringing the company’s total number of intimate care homes to seven. Residents of the homes, ranging from six to 11 beds, enjoy services of drivers, nurses, social workers, case managers and activity directors.
In August, the company will break ground on the new 60-bed Raya’s Paradise San Clemente.
“But we will still be bringing the expertise and professional staffing we’re known for, along with a better staff-to- patient ratio (3 to 1), and an attentive level of care,” said Gamburd.
“The new facility, right on the coast in a picturesque setting,” says Gamburd, “will be able to provide residents with everything they want, including activities and social engagement in a resort-like setting.”
“We’ve been providing quality care since my mother, Raya Gamburd, established the first Raya’s Paradise in 1991,” says Gamburd, “and we’ve had a lot of people saying ‘my relative is not quite ready for a facility, do you offer home care?’”
So the company has developed a subsidiary dedicated to helping clients in their homes. CARE (Caring, Assisting, Respecting our Elderly) Home-care sends qualified and trained caregivers to homes to help with daily routines, tasks and non-medical observation.
Services, available for four hours to 24 hours (in shifts), include providing medication assistance and reminders, including pharmacy support, meal planning and preparation, exercise and strengthening, activities at home including art, music, reading, gardening, cooking, brain-stimulating activities, games and regular physical activity, companionship, safe and reliable transportation to wherever clients wish to go and even light housekeeping.
Gamburd points out that with CARE Homecare:
• Caregivers are extensively screened and trained at Raya’s Paradise six locations (two more are on the way) so loved ones get the same level of care as they would at one of the residential-care homes.
• CARE Homecare also has trained and experienced caregivers for Alzheimer’s and dementia care.
Continual staff training in caregiving is a high priority at Raya’s. The company has been citied as a “Great Place to Work” and has several employees who’ve been with the company more than 20 years. “We believe that a good work environment translates into better care for our residents,” added Gamburd.
• All caregivers are employees, not independent contractors. They’re all insured and bonded; and, with Workers Comp and liability insurance, a client is not responsible for any injuries sustained.
Over its years in business, Raya’s Paradise has developed a network of resources including geriatric psychiatrists, mobile physicians, mobile labs and any other procedure that needs to be done at home, and can recommend a podiatrist or physical therapist.
To make sure clients’ homes are safe, the Gamburd family, owners and operators of Raya’s Paradise and CARE Homecare, also own a reputable medical equipment and home accessibility company, Gamburd Inc. developed by Israel Gamburd who grew up in the residential-care industry with his brother Moti. A CARE Homecare exclusive, Gamburd Inc. provides ramps, grab bars and much more.
