Home Care Worker Li Shares Her Story

After experiencing the loss of a loved one, Li asked herself: ‘What can I do to enjoy life? How can I give something back?’

“Naturally I gravitated to home care,” says Li.

“I’m so happy I’ve been able to do this. It’s so rewarding in so many ways.

I love the fact I can help keep people in their own homes longer and give them the one-on-one care and attention they need.

I also like that I get to go visit the same clients. I’ve got to know them really well. I can tell when they’re in a good mood or when they’re grumpy. I even know how they like their pillows on their couch.

When a client says: ‘thank you so much’ or ‘it’s so wonderful when you come,’ I feel like I’m making a real difference to their world.

When I see friends or family who haven’t seen me for a while, they say: ‘what’s happening with you? You’re so happy, you’re so content.’ And that’s because I feel valued and appreciated and can see I’m making a real difference in my clients’ lives.

And they’re also making a difference in mine. I have one client who loves his horses. We often go and visit them. He’s taught me a lot about their nature. I never would have thought I’d become a horse person. Another client, a previous dentist, we’ve shared many great conversations about my young daughter’s teeth.

I feel very fortunate to have found a job that brings me so much joy.”
