Advocacy and healthcare entrepreneurship flourishes in St. Catharines
By: Alieth Allen RPN, Liaison for Agency/Staffing for IB SIG.
I reside in St Catharines, Ontario. I am a mother of 3 children, have 10 grandchildren, and I have been foster parenting for several years. Since 1997 I have owned a health care agency called Visiting Angels® Inc. (visitingangels.ca) that provides home nursing care to all ages with brain injury and palliative care needs.
I also own Babysitting Angels® Inc. (babysittingangels.com) that provides care to children in case of an emergency, special events, and court ordered supervised visits. I have developed and instructed a variety of health care courses including: First Aid, CPR and AED, Brain Injury for Community and Family, Homemaking and Housekeeping, and Home Safety for Children. I have also had an opportunity to sit on several boards, and I volunteer in my community.
