I have experience in looking after the needs of my elderly parents, my mother who has dementia and my father who has a heart condition. So I understand the need for quality care for the elderly. Hence, I pursued a 14-module course in Advanced Certification in Social Services in Eldercare by Hua Mei Training Academy. I also have certification as a First Aider and CPR+AED Instructor.I also regularly accompany my parents for their regular medical appointments and am familiar with the healthcare system. Currently I’m engaged with families you required me to come in on a weekly basis to engage with their elderly.

Deepti has made a big difference to my mother-in-law's well-being. Within a short space of time, she identified the things which were important to her and applied them in each of her sessions - Indian classical music, board games such as monopoly and othello, traditional games such as 5 stones and enough time to chat about current affairs, things of interest to my mum-in-law or things that she finds troubling. This positive engagement has occupied my mother-in-law with activities she truly enjoys, allowed for trust to be built quickly and allowed Deepti to experiment with new activities from time to time. As such, it is no surprise that my mum-in-law looks forward very much to each of her sessions and shares her inner most feelings with Deepti. Deepti has been truly dedicated to the welfare of my mum-in-law, often spending a bit more than the scheduled time and taking her phone calls when she needs a sympathetic ear to listen to whatever is bothering her at the time. She sometimes calls in during the week just to speak to my mum-in-law. Given her closeness to my mum-in-law, we were pleased that Deepti was able to celebrate my mum-in-law's recent birthday together along with family and her closest friends. In view of the foregoing, I would strongly recommend Deepti as a caregiver given her kindness, her sincerity in providing care, her dedication and her continual search for solutions aimed at improving the well-being of my mum-in-law.
I engaged the services of Deepti while I was travelling back to Australia with my elderly parents whom both have individual health issues. I needed assistance with medication, mobility, and helping my parents adapting to a changed environment which would have been most challenging for me to do as a foreign traveller. Deepti ensured all their medical and companionship needs were covered, and took time to investigate their conditions and tailor made the care they needed individually. Deepti made a huge impact on my parents and my stay and we were 100% satisfied with the quality of the care service she displayed. Deepti was understanding and highly qualified for their medical needs as a carer for all aspects of their health needs including mobility, medication and in particular my father’s fluid restrictions and shortness of breath to my mother’s mobility and emotional needs. Deepti was sensitive, engaging and phenomenal company. I'd hear them laughing and talking, and apart from their medical needs, the attention given to them made them both feel very comfortable and special. Deepti had everything covered, it was more than I could ask for and felt extremely confident having my parents in Deepti’s care. I would highly recommend Deepti, as we all left with the fondest of memories and my parents still talk about her and tell their friends of the wonderful experience they had on their holiday. I initially booked for a carer / companion, but go so much more from my experience with Deepti in every respect. L Oppermann, Australia – October 2019
