Treemont Health Care Center recommends Traditional Medicare as it generally offers the best financial option if one is in need of nursing home care in Houston. Often specific insurance companies will only pay for nursing care at their own hospitals. If you want to stay at Treemont, the safest, most comprehensive, option is Traditional Medicare. That being said, Treemont works with as many insurance companies as possible, to seek temporary coverage for its residents.
Anny previously worked at Memorial City Health and Rehabilitation Center, starting as a receptionist and moving up in the company to Manager. Anny also worked with Sava Senior care for 6 years
Anny has a passion for working with seniors. “I want to make a difference in their lives even if it just making sure they have active insurance coverage or they are able to receive therapy through an insurance authorization. I enjoy helping our residents take care of even those small little things makes a great difference,” says Anny.
Anny was born in Bogota, Colombia, immigrating to Houston seeking a better future with more opportunities. She is married with 4 children Abigail 10, Ezekiel 9, Elijah 7 and Jonny 22 months. In her free time, Anny likes to read and do outdoor activities with her children.
