Gloria Lucia Henricks

Reg. Personal Support Worker


As a child, Gloria watched her mother care for her aging grandparents until the end of their lives, leaving a profound impact on the direction of Gloria's life. As a young adult; after her father was diagnosed with cancer, she was able to welcome the additional responsibility, and her father was able to stay at home in his final years. Being taken care of with the compassion and love that only home, comfort and family can bring.

It's no wonder that Gloria has chosen to continue on this path in her professional life. Her vision is to provide individualized care to her clients. As we age and in some cases fall ill, it's a source of comfort to be able to remain living at home, surrounded by a feeling of familiarity, safety and comfort. It's this vision that infuses Gloria's every interaction with her clients and their families, her business and soul. And it's this vision that makes Bright Angel Care singularly remarkable.
