Guardian Angels Homes was created in 1995 with the goal of providing professional and loving care within a comfortable home environment for those suffering from memory loss, Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. For 25 years, we have been serving the needs of seniors in North Tustin, featuring four beautiful homes throughout the community.
Led by Sonia Garcia Francia, MA, and Kelly Sabrina Francia, MHRM, Guardian Angels Homes has highly trained staff and caregivers whose main priority is to provide caring, compassionate, skilled care to all seniors in their charge.
When we first formed our company, we knew we wanted to create a home environment for the elderly and their caregivers so that they would feel loved, supported, and right at home. We had been in the eldercare business for many years prior to opening up Guardian Angels Homes, and our goal was to create homes that were warm and welcoming rather than clinical and impersonal.
We wanted to change all that and allow aging and ill seniors to be able to live out their days with decency, love, respect, and compassion, within a welcoming setting that would remind them of home.
Sonia has always felt called to serve the elderly since she was a little girl. She has worked with the elderly population for more than 40 years. Sonia was a social worker for one of Chicago’s biggest senior agencies for many years, then went on to be a social worker in Long Beach. Sonia has been on and off as a Board Member of Alzheimer’s Orange County since 1995.
Kelly grew up with the elderly since she was four years old, working alongside her mother over the years and learning the ropes. After finishing her CNA and Master’s Degree, Kelly is now full time and helps her mother run the business.
Both Sonia and Kelly are highly qualified because they have educational knowledge and common sense but mostly because they would do this for free if they could! It is enjoyable to help families throughout this hard journey and give workers a rewarding job.
Since creating our company, we haven’t looked back since, and are happy to be such a fixture in the local community.
