Daniel Purgal – Chief Operating Officer
“Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.” ~ Muhammed Ali
My name is Daniel Purgal and I am the acting COO of Loving Home Care Services, a family-run health and home care provider servicing the North Shore and Greater Vancouver areas for 26 years.
Recently, I have been successfuly in my candiacy and selected to join the BC Care Providers as a Board of Director – perhaps the biggest milestone of my almost 10-year career in senior home and health care. I look forward to closely working with the Board, bringing my unique skill set and experience to the table and to help achieve the Associations goals for the 2019 – 2020 term.
Carrying a strong and unique background in entrepreneurship with a deep and thorough understanding of business economics and healthcare, my passion lives through my role as COO to help innovate and guide the health care sector into a bright, transparent, innovative and technological adaptive forward-thinking future. I am currently working on several notable projects with incredible organizations within the medical and non-medical community to bring about new technologies and health initiatives in the hopes to help educate and enhance the quality of lives of elderly citizens, their families, and the front-line health care workers who are the backbone of the sector.
I love connecting and networking with community organizations and I have been fortunate to be a part of several committees and event sponsorships through the Alzheimer Society of BC, SafeCare BC, and NS Stroke Recovery Center.
As an original founding member of the now-dissolved Home Care BC, I served and headed the PR & Media Committee from September 2015 to December 2017 and acted as Vice President from July 2017 to December 2017.
The Home Care Service Providers Association of B.C., also known as Home Care BC, was incorporated in March 2016 by a group of concerned home care providers who wanted to sponsor positive public awareness and build a positive image for the home care industry in British Columbia. Recognizing that the home care industry lacked standards and accountability, we committed to working together to pool talents and resources to represent our industry as a critical component of the health care system.
In my other role, I act as the Director of Home Care for Arya Health EHR. A multidisciplinary, cost-effective, cross-platform electronic health record solution that offers all the features and tools you expect from an EHR, but only better. Arya uses HIPAA and PHIPA compliant hosting solutions and we have partnered with industry-leading security and privacy experts to ensure that patient information is safest in the EHR market. Our goal is to set Arya Health EHR as the gold-standard in patient data transfer and management for hospitals, walk-in and physician clinics, health care providers, and more.

I attended school at Allied Community College for nursing and finished my LVN degree. My family and I moved to Vancouver, British Columbia in 2008.
After one week of job searching, I found Loving Home Care Services of which was recommended to me by one of the senior acquaintances in church and according to her, the caregiver who looked after their husband came from the same company. The senior gave me the contact information for a Liliana Purgal, the companies President. On the same day, Liliana asked me to come over for an interview. The rest is a history full of many clients that I met and took care of as an employee of this company.
The company gave me the mindset to show my clients that it is not about the money that we do our services, it is about the love, responsibility, support, and willingness to listen to their stories, to give them self-worth, and to let them know that it is still a good life regardless of old age and maintain their dignity. Throughout my nine years of working with this company, I can without a doubt call them as my own family. Our company’s staff is trustworthy.
The cleanliness and hazard-proofing of the home environment is our main concern as well as taking care of their well-being. One of the many other things we are responsible for is the duty to take our clients out for activities such as walking, grocery shopping, and eating out, as well as vital things such as taking them to their medical appointments, pick up their prescriptions, and to monitor their medications.
We are also able to prepare meals for them that are suited for their needs; from diabetic diets to post-surgery meals. We are also in touch with the client’s immediate family, and work with the family to coordinate to work with their concerns and inquiries.
Using our skills, we make sure to keep our clients happy and safe.
