Zain Ali – Client Care Manager
Home care has always played an important role in my childhood and continued throughout my life till adulthood. As the son of a Program Manager, for Independent Living Program for Persons with Disabilities, I grew up in the office surrounded by Health Care Aids and residents with various physical limitation and chronic illnesses but they all held incredible life stories. The residents I got to know achieved outstanding honors, teaching me that your ability to change the lives of others and yourself manifests itself from within and it is produced from that very same place. Some of the residents I got to know were retired professors, computer programmers, equal right activists and a Paralympian. The lessons I learned from these residents, whom became sort of role models to me, can be found within care facilities and homes we just need to listen.
My interest in hearing and discovering life stories and cultures lead me to seek out University schooling to become an Anthropologist. From my experience with home care I grew to be passionate and compassionate for the stories of those who came before myself and the value in understanding where you come from. Last year I was awarded for Best Undergraduate Student Research at the 2016 Canadian Archaeological Association Conference for my work in Doing Bodo Without Bodo: Bringing Alberta’s Archeology into the Classroom.
I believe, each human is unique on their own but we all belong to larger cultures that can help bring us together in similarities, the overall arching of that being we are all a part of mankind. Within health care the compassionate coordination between all those involved produces high quality lifestyles and freedom for the client and their loved ones to live the life they seek.
