I am a hospitable Newfoundlander and a people pleaser, so I get my thrills from being appreciated by the people I serve. Given our rapidly aging population and the multifactorial issues causing the healthcare crisis, I feel there are many opportunities to help older adults maintain their independence wherever they call home and in the community. I care about making our cities more age friendly.
Some key things that help people age well are attending their medical appointments, taking medication, staying physically active, eating nutritious meals, and being socially engaged.
At Hulpr, we do a great job at making sure people get to and from their medical appointments and being socially beneficial for people along the way. Our service feels more like an outing with a loved one than a patient transfer.
What makes a great service for older people is not so much what we do, but rather who we have doing it. I am so lucky to work with a group of genuinely kind, compassionate, and qualified people, our Hulprs.
When I was younger, I never thought that I would start and grow a company that helps older people or folks with reduced mobility, but now that I am here, I can’t believe I ever did anything else. I am built for this service.
