Amit grew up in India in a small home with 5 other siblings. For years, his family just “got by” but his parents made sure that all the kids get good education. Amit’s parents inculcated the habit to care for others. Amit saw first-hand how his mom helped his grandmother in her last few years with bathing, toileting, meal preparation etc. He remembers how mom used to suffer from back pain all day but due to financial limitations, she never asked to hire a caregiver. Children’s education was mom’s first priority.
Amit understood the hardships his parents had to go through to put him through his Master’s degree in the US, so he worked every job he could find to work his way through college. After graduating from one of the top 10 engineering colleges in the US, Amit worked in Business Strategy and Risk Management for about 10 years where he picked up business management and leadership skills. In his job, Amit was well paid, but not fulfilled. He feels that he has been blessed in life, so he wanted to do something for others. So, he and his wife, Poonam, started Inspired Care Home Health.
Through Inspired Care, Amit wants to provide excellent yet affordable care to clients, peace of mind to family members and a healthy growth environment for employees. Amit is forever grateful to his parents and all those who have helped him along the way. He hopes to inspire others as they have inspired him.
Poonam knew from early on that she wanted to be a nurse. She was very close to her grandmother, who taught Poonam all about life. Their companionship shaped Poonam’s beliefs and behaviors. But it was in the last six months of her life, that Poonam’s grandmother unknowingly set in stone what would be Poonam’s.
One thing, apart from her grandmother’s indomitable spirit, were the nurses and caregivers at her bedside. They showed Poonam firsthand the dramatic difference that comes from having professional and sincere help at your bedside. They gently explained everything to her grandmother and family. They understood the family’s pain, but kept to a good firm discipline with their regime. They instilled in Poonam a trust that granny was in good hands.
It was at that moment that Poonam decided to provide care for the elderly, and at a price they could afford. She started her career as a Licensed Practical Nurse, and worked her way up to be a Registered Nurse and eventually earned her Bachelors of Science in Nursing. Her grandmother’s inspiration shaping Poonam, she opened Inspired Care Home Health, where she continues her passion of helping seniors. Her dream is to care for your family members with the same love and care her grandmother received.
