Pam Howland - Compliance and Emergency Management Plan

Caregivers come from a variety of backgrounds: military, teaching, nursing, moms returning to the workforce, legal assistance, and many more. Whatever the background, we bring art and science to caregiving. Art to share our love of music, crafts, cooking, and reading to enhance a client’s life. Science to continually learn proper techniques that ensure the safety of a client and help them navigate technology. My background in performing helps me inhabit a client’s reality. I sing 30’s, 40’, and 50’s songs to soothe them when they’re anxious. Computer consulting and training background allows me to help them get a better understanding of technology. Administrative compliance responsibilities allow me to use my work experience to keep up to date on regulatory, emergency management, and Home Instead policies and procedures. But, still at heart a caregiver, I find great joy in being empathetic to fellow caregivers’ needs and being able to guide them through their caregiving journey.
