My name is Carlixta and I was born in Dominican Republic. My parents are Valentina and Francisco. I had 8 siblings, but only 7 are alive. I am happily married to Demetrio and we have one daughter, Carolina.
In my free time I like to walk and knit. I like making scarfs, baby blankets, and hats. These things keep my body and my brain active. With these little creations, I can show my love to my nephews, nieces and friends.
“I was not successful at taking my medication daily until I learned about Wellth”
I have been working as a caregiver for many years. I like to make sure that all my patients are clean, take their medication on time, eat well and feel happy. To be able to achieve all this requires a lot of my time and my commute to my job is long. I leave home early in the morning and I return at night. I am in a constant state of rush. I have arthritis, asthma and high blood pressure. I was not successful at taking my medication daily until I learned about Wellth.
One day I received a call from Wellth letting me know I was eligible for a 6 month program that was going to help me to create good habits while receiving rewards simply by using the app. I agreed immediately!
My internet connection was really bad, so it took me a long time to download the app. The representative helped me patiently during the entire process. With her and my perseverance we did it! At that moment I did not know that this program was going to change my life.
The first days were challenging, as everything in life. We need to learn new things about technology every day. I was learning how to work a smartphone and an app at the same time. I was so glad to learn a new skill. It keeps our brains more agile.
Twice during my program, I needed help with the app I called the support line, Marci helped me with everything. She answered with professionalism and took care of all my issues.
“Since finishing Wellth Rewards I take my medication every day without a problem. An imaginary reminder sounds in my head every single day.”
Since finishing Wellth Rewards I take my medication every day without a problem. An imaginary reminder sounds in my head every single day. I have it in my memory...planted deeply. At my age it is more difficult to remember all the things that we need to do. Wellth helps to teach you and create a habit in your mind.
This COVID situation made me feel some anxiety and made me snack more. Being part of Wellth helped me be more mindful about my health. While I was on the program, I decided to also improve my eating habits. I reduced the carbohydrates in my diet, eliminated fried food, and started eating more fruits and vegetables.
The financial rewards helped me a lot also. I am part of a low income population. We work so hard every day for a basic salary. It is hard to be able to afford many things. We need to pay for rent, electricity, food and medications. With the rewards I received, I was able to buy shampoo, soap, some groceries, and vitamins. I feel that it is really beneficial to have this kind of program available for us since it creates healthy habits for us and at the same time helps us have a better quality of life.
“This partnership between my insurance company and Wellth was an amazing idea”
I recommend this program to everyone. This partnership between my insurance company and Wellth was an amazing idea. I want to thank the whole Wellth team from the bottom of my heart for creating a program that helps so many people, especially low income families. Thank you for thinking of us and giving us the opportunity to improve our lives.
Thank you for giving us that push to follow the doctor's instructions and teaching us that we can create long lasting healthy habits between our medications and our diets which then keeps us healthier and happier.
