“Meghan is a ray of sunshine. She walks into a client’s home and brings joy to their world. She provides excellent care. So glad that she is part of the Firefly team!” – Dawn Allen, Care Manager at Firefly Home Care
How did you become a caregiver at Firefly? I saw a job ad online and loved that it was a family-owned company. The caregiver position sounded like a good fit for me. I had experience caring for my grandparents – my grandfather had a brain tumor and my grandmother had Lou Gehrig’s Disease.
What do you like best about being a caregiver? I love having a relationship with my clients and bringing them comfort and putting a smile on my clients’ and families’ faces. I love meeting the clients and families and hearing their stories and learning about their lives – I genuinely love it!”
What do you like to do in your spare time? I like spending time with my son, playing Legos with him, and doing outdoor activities like skiing, as well as Pilates and running. I also volunteer with special needs children and enjoy taking them skiing at Swiss Valley. I also volunteer at my son’s school and our church.
Do you have any memorable, inspirational or funny moments as a caregiver? There are so many. My grandmother who had ALS thankfully never lost her voice. She was from South Hampton, England, and had a beautiful accent and a large vocabulary. It was a very challenging time caring for her, but also the most beautiful time being able to give back to her and take care of her the way she took care of us.
