As concerned daughters, we have recently become more aware that although our parents are young hearted & active, there are certain errands, odd jobs & tasks that are becoming more challenging to do safely or without being too tiring/taxing. Carrying heavy laundry baskets & grocery bags isn't easy, especially with any mobility or health concerns.
We have also supported our parents(& people through work) to medical appointments and day surgeries in and out of town. It's important to know there is someone there, waiting with you, or for you, to arrive and return home safely.
Throughout our careers, we both have considerable experience attending medical appointments, understanding medications and procedures. We are knowledgeable of the Health & Safety Act and have also had extensive pandemic training...this was
a big part of our professional careers as Developmental Service Workers.
Although we are not providing medical services, as we have throughout our careers, we do have a very keen eye for changes in peoples' personal well-being & health.
If we are concerned about something or someone,
we would share our concerns immediately.
On a more personal note, Allow Us to share a little more about ourselves...
We have been very good friends for over 40 years.
We are light hearted girls who like to laugh & joke with people...& we try not to take life too seriously.
We both graduated from Loyalist College, where we specialized in human services, and have over 35 years experience combined, supporting seniors & people with disabilities.
We have excellent relationships with our parents,
and a strong network of friends & work colleagues.
Throughout our lives, we've been introduced to the importance of community, friendship, and strong family values.
Our parents taught by example, worked hard, played hard & dedicated time to churches, groups and organizations within our community. They continue to have very active lives & we strongly feel that their continued independence is the result of having happy, thriving social lives, and just a little bit of help, now and then.
We intend to provide a personalized "through the door service" that is designed to make life just a little bit easier & less stressful for the seniors in our lives, while promoting independence, and friendship...having fun is also pretty high on our priority list.
We look forward to this new adventure, meeting new people, and all the wonderful possibilities.
