Olive Gaye is the owner and founder of GenCare Resources, an in-home caregiver service that provides medically necessary care to individuals of all ages in the state of Florida. Prior to establishing an agency for providing medical care in the community, Olive was employed as a Human Resources executive for the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority (GOAA), the managing body for Orlando International Airport and Orlando Executive airport. During her tenor with the airport, Olive was the consummate volunteer for many organizations, believing, as was ingrained in her upbringing, everyone has something to give back to the community.
After thirteen years at the Aviation Authority, Olive decided to transfer her passion for working with people in the Human Resources field to a completely new arena, Home Healthcare. GenCare Resources Home Healthcare is the result of Olive’s vision to create a first-class organization that sets the benchmark in quality home healthcare for individuals of all ages.
GenCare Resources’ unique model and approach takes into consideration the “whole” person, not just the medical aspect of homecare. Staying true to her vision and leadership, GenCare Resources Home Healthcare has established itself as the premier home healthcare organization in Florida. Olive and her team of medical professionals continue to provide quality care to individuals and job opportunities for Floridians, while adhering to the industry’s highest nationally recognized standards. GenCare was recently accredited by the Community Health Accreditation Partner, Inc., (CHAP) for its commitment to excellence and was recently nominated for the 2015 Bright House Central Florida Business Award.
Along with her responsibilities within GenCare Resources, Olive is very involved in her community. Social and religious activities include being an active member of her church and participating in various community services and charities. Some of the these activities include providing counseling for teenagers and adults; teaching English to non-English speaking adults; organizing meals for the Coalition for the Homeless center; and volunteering with Public Radio activities that benefit the community. In addition, Olive serves as a board member of the Caribbean-American Advisory Council to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, a judge for the DECA, a school program that prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in Marketing, Finance, Hospitality and Management. Olive is also an event judge and volunteer for Health Occupation Students of America (HOSA), which provides leadership skills for future Healthcare Professionals.
