About Emily

It all started with family. After college graduation, I was looking for a job when my uncle was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma and he needed help. Since I had time, I took him to all his appointments, ran errands for him, scheduled doctors' visits, did light chores around the house. After he went into remission and returned to living independently, other family members were also in need of more care. I have been helping to take care of my aging grandmothers, and some of their friends, for the past 3 years, who have had their own health concerns. Not only do I love helping other people, I enjoy spending quality time with them. They have such rich lives and histories, it's a pleasure getting to know them on a deeper level. It's been such a wonderful opportunity to learn more about my family. I may not have studied, or searched, for this profession, but it is one I have seamlessly transitioned into and thoroughly enjoy. My hope as a caregiver is to provide as much aid as I can so that a person can still live a productive and happy life with respect and dignity.

    I am a very competent and enthusiastic caregiver with an outgoing personality, great communication skills, and a passion for taking care of others. I love caring for and helping people, and have actively participated in and volunteered with many caregiving programs. I sincerely believe that this job gives me immense fulfillment and satisfaction, as I truly love caring for people. I looked after my grandfather after he had a stroke. The stroke affected my grandfather's leg movement and memory, and it became difficult for him to walk. Caring for my grandfather increased my interest in care and compassion for the elderly. I have a strong background in caregiving, and I feel that the professional experiences I have uniquely qualify me to care for your loved ones. For example, I have volunteered at Mnkhanya Community Based Home and Blessed Hope Care in rural Zambia caring for the elderly people. Through volunteering with organizations such as the Maternal Health Association of Zambia, the Kenya Voluntary Development Association and Coordinating Committee for International Voluntary Service, and Service Civil International, I have worked on diverse projects focusing on care for the elderly in Europe and Africa. My First Aid and CPR certifications along with more than a year of extensive experience as a caregiver give me confidence in my ability to do this job well. My professional background has provided me with broad experience in this line of work.
