Kulea Love

Our Caregivers

Our Caregivers

Kulea is a Swahili word that means “caring from the heart”. That’s what our caregivers bring each and every day.

They offer significant life and professional experiences in relevant areas of expertise. As an organization, Kulea Love prides itself on hiring staff who are genuinely interested in older people and know how to make them feel important and looked after. That’s the culture they come from.

Our caregivers are trained on standard First Aid and CPR as well as on FoodSafe and Canadian values and culture.
