I was raised to believein the value of large, extended families and having the utmost respect for older people is taught and stressed from a very young age. Being from Pakistan, taking care of one's parents and grandparents is not only expected, but it's the norm. When I was in college working for a company that provided transportation services for seniors, I was struggling with where to focus my career. It was then that a light bulb went off and I saw that serving seniors was my calling. This has led to a long career in senior care. I now spend my days working with seniors and their loved ones at The Branches of Framingham in Framingham, Mass., helping them define what the next chapter of their lives will look like.
