I came from the United States as a licensed practitioner nurse and have been working for 10 years at the convalescent facility, also known as hospice care facility. I attended school at Allied Community College for nursing and finished my LVN degree. My family and I moved to Vancouver, British Columbia in 2008.
After one week of job searching, I found Loving Home Care Services of which was recommended to me by one of the senior acquaintances in church and according to her, the caregiver who looked after their husband came from the same company. The senior gave me the contact information for a Liliana Purgal, the companies President. On the same day, Liliana asked me to come over for an interview. The rest is a history full of many clients that I met and took care of as an employee of this company.
The company gave me the mindset to show my clients that it is not about the money that we do our services, it is about the love, responsibility, support, and willingness to listen to their stories, to give them self-worth, and to let them know that it is still a good life regardless of old age and maintain their dignity. Throughout my nine years of working with this company, I can without a doubt call them as my own family. Our company’s staff is trustworthy.
The cleanliness and hazard-proofing of the home environment is our main concern as well as taking care of their well-being. One of the many other things we are responsible for is the duty to take our clients out for activities such as walking, grocery shopping, and eating out, as well as vital things such as taking them to their medical appointments, pick up their prescriptions, and to monitor their medications.
We are also able to prepare meals for them that are suited for their needs; from diabetic diets to post-surgery meals. We are also in touch with the client’s immediate family, and work with the family to coordinate to work with their concerns and inquiries.
Using our skills, we make sure to keep our clients happy and safe.
