CAREGiver of the Month August 2021 - Marie A

Marie has been a CAREGiver with Home Instead for seventeen years! As a retired Civil Servant, Marie wanted to continue serving her community and joined Home Instead in 2004. She has brought joy to her clients lives ever since!

“When I retired and wanted to do something that would help others I was fortunate enough to find Home Instead when they were just starting in Halifax.  Over the years I have met many seniors who have lived very interesting lives.  I consider it a privilege to have been a part of their lives and hopefully been a help to them and their families.  I hope new caregivers know that they are making a difference in their clients lives.  Many years after some seniors are no longer with us I still get cards from their families.”

Marie has the ability to seamlessly transform her caregiving relationships into friendships and her clients have thrived under her care.

Congratulations and thank you for your compassion and service to older adults in your community, Marie.
