Employee Spotlight - Meriam Zaglem

March 20, 2019

Meriam Zaglem works as a community care worker with the elderly within our team. She has worked as a carer for the last 2 years.  Firstly she started by taking care of her father in his moment of need, and while doing so she realised how much the elderly require constant care and companionship.


Meriam is a very loving and caring person.  She eagerly offers a helping hand when there is need and try to make the persons around her feel as comfortable as possible.


What do you like most about your job?

“Being able to help different types of client and being part of their day to day life. Feeling part of their family for those few hours while making them feel comfortable.”


What advise do you give to aspiring carers?

“This job needs to be done with gentleness and kindness. You need to be a loving person to be able to encourage and empathy the elderly, so that they can continue with their daily life. Therefore it’s very important to know how to fill their day with encouragement and activities.”
