Senior Living Houston: Dining Room's Aurora Reyna Sandoval

A key reason seniors choose retirement living is a desire to have the option of three meals a day, seven days a week. This helps residentsAurora_senior living houston dining 2-1 to stay healthy and also creates casual social opportunities as part of residents’ daily living experience. Since most Treemont residents dine three times daily at our community, it is extra important that our Dining Staff make dining a pleasant and enjoyable experience. Naturally, food preparation is important. But a key ingredient to a wonderful dining atmosphere is also the attitude of staff. Dining Service Manager Chef James Renshaw works to hire capable team members that are in tune with customer service. Recently, Aurora Reyna Sandoval was hired as a server. It soon became apparent that Aurora had the personality and patience to take on the role of answering the Dining Room phone.

Resident experiences are the best testimonial. As Resident Ann Oyen says, “You are the crème of the crop. Thank you for being so patient with me!” During the COVID19 pandemic, Aurora took on the key role of responding to resident dining orders, a challenging task given everyone was receiving food trays delivered to their apartments. Aurora makes sure everyone gets their breakfast, lunch and dinner menu orders.

Says Chef James, “Aurora is amazing. She has such patience and an ability to make sure our residents’ needs are heard and their orders are properly delivered. We’re delighted that Aurora found her way to Treemont!”

Aurora previously worked as a security guard at Five Star Event, but the job went away due to covid. “I was referred to Treemont and sought out this new job opportunity. I have a good heart, personality, and patience to fix any problem. I love the residents. They are all special to me.”

Aurora is a native of Houston, having graduated from Jefferson Davis High School. Her parents are Lorena Ontiveros and Paul Sandoval and she has a 13-year old sister Anahi.

Now you know a little more about the pleasant voice on the other side of the kitchen phone. We are excited to have Aurora’s passion for customer service and her desire to accommodate our residents and remedy any issues. Please welcome Aurora Reyna Sandoval to the Treemont team.
