"I am continually struck by the professionalism, high level of caring and exemplary caregivers that I have met from Home Instead. My mom couldn't live without them, and neither could I.
Emily is a graduate from the Bachelor of Public Relations Program at Mount Saint Vincent University. She grew up on Prince Edward Island and couldn't help but return to her Island roots. Caring has always come second nature to Emily. Special relationships with her grandparents has inspired her to promote independence and well-being of our Island seniors. In her spare time, Emily enjoys riding horses and spending time with her pup.
I come from a family of 13, was born on PEI, and have lived here most of my life. I have always been around seniors, and had the privilege of taking care of a great man in 2004-2005. In 2008, I had the opportunity to work with Home Instead Senior Care. I jumped at the chance to work with seniors again. Working with seniors gives me a great sence of fulfillment.
Some of my hobbies include reading a good book, spending time with family and friends, especially my granddaughter. I love to travel, live horse races, and I also enjoy watching classic movies.
A quote that I have always loved is:
"They may forget what you said, but they will never forget how you made them feel."
I am an international educated nurse from Taiwan. My family just relocated to this beautiful island after few years stay in Montreal and Toronto. We LOVE this place. Our baby girl is so lucky to grow up here. In addition to having experience in senior care, I have been volunteering at many medical centers. My experience tells me that seniors are not just seniors, but they are wiser in life. I have learned a lot from them, and want to keep learning. I am so glad to have this opportunity to work as a CAREGiver at Home Instead this allows me to be part of healthcare which is my passion and to give 100% back to seniors.
I am newly married and new to this Island from Cape Breton Island. I have a wonderful husband and a large family, with lots of nieces and nephews to cuddle. :) My love of seniors came from spending time with my dear Grandma who passed away at 98 years old. She was a fantastic role model for her large family. I have learned that if we just stop and listen to those who are older they can teach us valuable lessons!
Hi to all. I am a Charlottetown gal who has retired from a social services position and is very pleased to be working with such great people. I have a Human Services background with Commercial Design as well. I am a mom with two grown children whom I am very proud of.I was able to be with my mom and support her when she chose to stay at home. It was a gift to me and to her. As well, I worked with seniors at one of the Government facilities during the summer between my 1st and 2nd college year. With those two experiences and the staff at Home-Instead I knew I would enjoy this work.
I am a mom and wife and live in the Kensington area. I have been caregiving for most of my life and appreciate the relationships and connections with the seniors I have met. Working for Home Instead allows me to create new relationships and give back. I am a dog lover and enjoy reading a good book.
I am currently in the resident care worker program with Marguerite Connolly training and consulting. My whole life I have loved to help people, put smiles on faces and make a positive difference in the lives of those that I encounter, which was why I enrolled in the rcw program. I have a background in working with developmental disabilities, and I volunteer with community connections (a day Center for adults with disabilities) quite frequently. This line of work had brought great joy to my life and leaves me feeling appreciated and accomplished. Outside of work I have a passion for music, drawing and spending time with family and friends.
