What do you like most about your job?

I have always had a passion for helping people and making them happy from the very start. When I had the opportunity to work as a caregiver, I was thrilled to find a profession that I found joy in, which also allowed me to make a difference in a senior's life.

What drove you to begin your profession as a caregiver?

I was very attached to my late grandparents and always enjoyed being in their company. I loved supporting them and all of the aspects of being a caregiver- especially for the elderly. They taught me that dedication, reliability, and remaining focused were all important qualities to have in this line of work.

How would you describe Care Indeed’s culture?

Care Indeed is unlike other home care organizations. The clients and caregivers are valued and treated like family. Vanessa and Dee have created an environment where the focus is on bringing out the best in every individual.

Is there a golden rule you live by? If so, how has it helped you throughout your career?

I always believe in the mantra, "do good, and good will come to you." When you have the right attitude and believe in yourself, it makes you better at everything you do. I always try to put myself in the other person's shoes and think about what I would want if I were on the other side. I value being genuine and honest with the clients.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

Spend time with my family and my lovely wife.

What do you think about being an employee of the month and anything you want to share with colleagues?

My focus is always to provide excellent care for my clients. Being an employee of the month gave me the confidence to continue that focus in all aspects of my caregiving. For my fellow team members, I only want to say, "treat them as your family and always be patient with them."
