We value our relationship with Sara Tremblay Guillemette and Washington Home Care! We had so much fun with this interview, keep scrolling to check it out!
What is your role at WHC?
Non-medical home care “home assessor”
Writer : Non-medical plan of care (job descriptions)
Durable medical equipment soft goods “donation closet keeper”
Tea, Hot Cider, Cocoa, Coffee Maker 😉
Before WHC what was the most unusual or interesting job you’ve ever had?
Country line dancer in Marne-la-Vallée, a town located near Paris, France. Disneyland Paris, Walt Disney Studios Park, Val d’Europe.
How do you balance your career at WHC and family?
So, this is a very sincere challenge! Two of the children are now young adults, the only remaining minor is now driving & fiercely independent, plus helpful. In this particular industry, if the agency is an “employment agency” the balance is all the more difficult. For this reason, the business model I opened is a “Registry” from which I do not hire, fire, management, nor supervise.
What do you find the most challenging at WHC?
Covid19. The rest, I felt reasonably prepared for.
What do you like most about WHC?
It’s a dream come true! My firm belief is that every town would benefit from its own home care agency, as much as each town benefits from a library, a school, a post office, a fire dept., a police dept., and a senior center.
What have you gained starting WHC?
Awareness, connections, friendships, Community, Knowledge, Preparedness, Empathy.
What is your proudest moment at WHC?
12/21/2019, that opening day & the support that showed up.
What would people never guess you do in your role?
Thoroughly read long term care policies.
What would you do (for a career) if you weren’t doing this?
Private detective! I love research!
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Precisely where I am. Living within a half mile of the Wa office as a resident of Washington.
Where is your favorite place to eat?
New Morning Market.
You’re happiest when?
When I’m on a walk OR gardening w/ family.
