Holly’s Story

CareGivers has grown from humble beginnings to become one of the largest, and the first accredited, home care agency in Newfoundland and Labrador.

“The dedication and compassion of our team makes me so proud to be part of this organization” says Holly King, Regional Manager in Placentia, NL, where CareGivers first opened its doors more than 25 years ago. “ It speaks volumes to not only me as a manager but also to the families of our clients. One of our main goals is to ensure that care is delivered in the most professional way possible and I can confidently say  my team members keep that goal front and center daily.”

“They all go above and beyond,” Holly continues. “Beyond completing the clients daily care needs, our workers take part in some fun hobbies our clients love to do such as baking or painting. Those are just a few examples – I could tell you hundreds more.”

“I’ve found that finding ways to engage the clients in the activities they enjoy lifts their spirits,” says Holly. “Often, clients like being able to help with the tasks in some way – whether it’s helping to fold towels or kneading the dough for bread – there’s always a way they can help out if they want to. It also provides great mental stimulation and helps with their dexterity, too. Finding ways to spark little moments of joy fosters overall wellness.”

We’re so proud of our community of caregivers, clients, and families. This section of our website is dedicated to bringing you stories about the wonderful people who make our organization great. We look forward to continuing to share their stories.
