Her Story- A Dream Come True
After being made redundant, the Covid-19 pandemic, and my pregnancy, I still was out applying and looking employment to have a steady income and nobody took me on. So I needed to earn a living doing something I loved to do, was great at, and something was needed in Bermuda. 3 months after my daughter Musiq was born I brought my business to light. So with these lemons, I made lemonade, it was my mission to finally start my business with all the passion and experience I have in healthcare. I vowed to always be the best boss and treat people with respect. This is how Always Best Senior Care Services was birthed. Finally, a senior caregiving business that not only specializes in providing activities on-the-go but which also focuses on helping dementia and special needs clients live a happier life. I appreciate my staff and am looking to continue to expand my business for the betterment of Bermuda’s seniors and my family. I have always had a vision to continue working with seniors by starting my own senior care business and senior’s activity center so stay tuned.
I want to be able to help young black Bermudians especially get to where they need to be. I am offering training for those looking to get in the healthcare Caregiving business.
I am definitely blessed and would like to say thank everyone for their support during my journey.
Many blessings to everyone!
