It was caring for my own father before he passed away a little over 10 years ago that brought home to me the trials and tribulations that carers and those that they care for go through on a daily basis. That experience, whilst very demanding, was extraordinarily rewarding and gave me a new sense of purpose. It planted a seed within me that eventually led me to take over the running of this branch of Visiting Angels. The ancient Greeks believed that looking after elders is a sacred duty and I have come to share that sentiment. Being able to care for my father in his homely environment and comforts and maintain his dignity was important to me and my family.
Looking after my father was an honour and a privilege.
My background to this point has been in the hospitality industry. Hospitality is about caring for guests and ensuring that their stay is as enjoyable as possible. I believed then and I believe now that, as an employer, this is best achieved by looking after your staff. When they are cared for, they in turn, do their job to the best of their ability.
I nurture my team with regular training, new skills, and great employee benefits to not only help them personally succeed but also to empower them, with my support and confidence, to provide the best home care services in the Middlesex area. What attracted me the most to Visiting Angels is that they share this philosophy. I have a deep commitment to attention to detail and setting and maintaining high standards and this is another value that Visiting Angels and I both share.
I grew up in this area and I am committed to developing a business that will give back to this community. With this business, I have the freedom and flexibility to do that and to truly tailor services to clients in need. So, over the coming years, I am determined to build Visiting Angels Middlesex into the most warm-hearted and dependable at-home care provider in the area.
