Michelle has worked with PHC since 2014 as a live-in hourly and 24 hour caregiver.
Michelle works as a caregiver because she really wants to do this rather than anything else. Prior to being a caregiver she worked in various schools and transitioned to working with special needs children.
Michelle worked with the United Nations starting when she was 19 years old including for UNICEF; mostly with early childhood development and children. She also helped build schools with UNICEF in Pakistan, Iran and Afghanistan.
Michelle loves being a caregiver but she really just loves people.
As a caregiver she thinks about her parents, and grandparents. “We have a lot of respect for older people in my culture and that is why I love working with this population. It allows me to show respect and to really help someone in a meaningful way.”
Michelle has worked with the same client for the past 3 years providing companionship, assistance with personal care, meal preparation, and medication reminders.
The transition from working with children to working with older adults was natural. Michelle is an excellent cook and loves providing companionship. She makes clients and their families instantly feel at ease. Her long career with UNICEF, personality, experiences around the world, and training.
