Small Steps Start with Big Dreams in North Etobicoke, ON
On September 4, 2015, Canadian Franchise Magazine wrote a fantastic piece about the North Etobicoke home-care services provided by a local franchise owner; and about the personal journey for Right at Home North Etobicoke franchise owner, Joanne Ellis.
Close to five years later, with more experience under our belts, we want to re-visit this nostalgic article to provide Etobicoke and Ontario locals with a retrospective on the path a small-business owner in North Etobicoke had to follow to provide quality senior and in-home care services in her neighbourhood. Here is how it all began for Joanne Ellis:
A Journey of a Thousand Miles
The background and experience from Joanne’s personal history allowed her to empathize for patients in need, and to present complex information in a professional and easy-to-understand format. As we look back, we can see how much our interactions with our family, loved ones, patients, and their families have had on us as we started on this decade-long journey together.Joanne has always had a caregiver’s spirit. Right at Home Canada feels that the individual nature of a person is so crucial to determining their optimal role within an in-home care business, tailored to their professional and inherent strengths.
Having exceptional bedside manner and rapport building skills is vital to developing a secure connection between our clients, their families, and our North Etobicoke and Ontario caregivers. With a strong team to support our caregivers in the field, everyone has a safety net to ensure that they can live their lives to the fullest, and make lasting memories filled with co-operation, understanding, and a positive outlook.
We believe that a journey of a thousand miles begins with small steps, inspired by big dreams!
