Join us in congratulating Alison, CAREGiver of the month! Alison has been a CAREGiver with Home Instead Kelowna since February 2017.
I am originally from Maple Ridge, BC but moved to Kelowna in August 2016 for school. I am currently working on my Master of Social Work at UBCO, and in September, I will begin my second and final year. Needless to say, I am very excited! Upon completion of my degree, I hope to be working in the field of mental health, specifically with older adults. When I began looking for work, I came across Home Instead and quickly realized that this was a perfect fit.
I love working with people and making a difference in others' lives. Working as a caregiver has been so rewarding and I am so grateful to have met so many amazing people - clients, office staff and fellow caregivers - in the short time that I have been with the company.
Aside from work and school, I am in the midst of planning my wedding which will take place next year. I also enjoy hiking and camping, and a good family game night.
Every month, Home Instead Kelowna recognizes an outstanding CAREGiver for their dedication and excellent work.
Home Instead offers free monthly newsletters with tips and advice for caregivers of elderly loved ones.
