Ina Raymundo has maintained a very close relationship with her yaya since she was seven years old. In fact, the actress grew very fond of her yaya that she kept her until she had her own kids. Yaya Josie, who was like a second mother to Ina, grew old with the actress and chose to stay with Ina’s family. Unfortunately, she had to be hospitalized in St. Luke’s Global recently for Pulmonary Embolism due to Deep Vein Thrombosis.
Luckily, Yaya Josie seems to be on her way to recovery. In an Instagram post, Ina expressed how happy and thankful she was that Yaya Josie was still with them. On her yaya’s birthday, the actress posted a sweet message for her:
“Oh our dear Yaya Josie, Happy Birthday! I’ve known our Yaya since I was 7 years old. She’s the only Yaya of my 5 kids. Her firstborn is my goddaughter. Last Sunday, as soon as our plane landed in Manila from Vancouver, she got very sick. I would like to thank the PAL terminal 2 staff attending to her especially Dra. De Padua. For giving her oxygen which she badly needed at that time. Their ambulance took us to St. Luke’s Global, where she was later diagnosed with Pulmonary Embolism due to Deep Vein Thrombosis. I thank God that she made it! Thank you Lord. Thanks to the nurses and staff of St. Luke’s Global for taking really good care of our Yaya. Thank you Dr. Alejandro Prieto and Dr. Nolido for making sure she was out of danger. Thank you Dr. “Pogi” Aye Nuguid for referring Dr. Prieto! Thanks to my prayer warriors, my sisters, @iyahortz and @shelskie! I honestly don’t know what I’ll do without your prayers.Our Yaya needs to rest and take meds for 6 months. I’ll make sure that she’ll be 100% healthy again! My kids and I love her so much!”

Ina Raymundo is indeed a role model to every employer. From the looks of it, she does not treat her employees as subordinates. Rather, she treats them as family.
