Hello, welcome to “Happy Homemakers Homecare”. My name is Dawn Aitken and I am, the Happy Homemaker.
Eight years ago I cared for my father-in-law and I felt truly blessed to be in the position where I could not only provide him with a clean and comfortable home, but with a renewed sense of hope and connection to the world around him. They say that when you give of yourself, you get twice as much back, and that was truly the case for me. I loved my father-in-law, but in caring for him he gifted me with a real love for care.
When he passed in his 90th year, I went on to continue to pursue work in the homecare field. What I experienced was a system that was overwhelmed and impersonal. There was little time or opportunity to develop a personal relationship with the client. The “task based” system that exsisted, while meeting a client’s medical needs, did not leave time to meet their individual and emotional needs.
That’s why in 2011, I decided to start Happy Homemakers Homecare. Happy Homemakers Homecare is a “non-medical” service that is designed to provide support to overworked family caregivers, spouse’s challenged with the care of family members suffering with dementia, alzheimers, depression and disability. While nursing services are not available, many of the everyday personal and household tasks are covered, such as light housekeeping, escort to events and appointments, bathing, dressing, teeth brushing, light cooking, shopping and medications supervision.
Clients feel engaged and supported, while family members, relieved of the daily stresses of caregiving, can now find time to rest, refresh and enjoy the time they have to spend with the ones they love.
It is my goal to brighten and ease the lives of my clients. Make everyday a happy one* I look forward to speaking with you soon.
