Our Team

It happens slowly.

So slowly in fact, that we hardly notice.

Until one day, the wrinkles on the face of the person looking back at us in the mirror bely the youth still burning within.

The abilities we’ve had for so long – our sight, our agility, our energy, our memory – we can no longer take for granted. The older we get, the more we have to rely on others.

Compromises are made so we don’t impose. We give up some independence.

We don’t want to be a burden – a task for those who help us.

PROOF of CARE understands.

Tracy Sacre

Tracy Sacré is a passionate entrepreneur and visionary in the home care sector.

As a former Intensive Care Unit nurse and mother of two, Tracy has an intimate knowledge and understanding of how to care for those who, through the course of time or events,
are unable to care for themselves.

As an Instructor of Nursing at Vancouver Community College, she has an extensive knowledge about the latest research and advancements in nursing. Tracy’s RN background as well as her time working in Neurology and Stroke Research gives her valuable insight in to what might be happening to our loved ones.

Tracy sits on the Board of Directors for the North Shore Keep Well Society. North Shore Keep Well Society’s purpose is to promote the health and well being of older adults living on the North Shore. To encourage seniors to help themselves and each other, to live in better health, to learn, and to expand their experiences of well-being. Keep Well’s purpose aligns with Tracy’s personal and professional goals, values and mission.

Rather than doing business simply for profit, Tracy’s legacy is to change the way we care for our elderly, to add value to those who gave us values.

Tracy’s warm, welcoming, approachable personality puts anyone who meets her instantly at ease…not to mention the way her laugh fills a room.

Tracy was born and raised in North Vancouver, where she currently lives with her husband and two daughters.

Brittany Gladdish

Brittany is the Care Manager in the Proof of Care office. She has been a nurse since 2009 with experiences varying from Acute Care to Home Support, Pediatrics to Geriatrics, Managerial to Bedside and nearly everything in between. This diverse experience supports her views on health care from a holistic perspective. Nursing and care giving run in her family with both Grandmothers being care givers throughout their working years, it was a natural path to follow for Brittany. She’s very passionate about building and creating a great connection with her clients and their families using her gentle and warm approach.

After leaving her small home town in the Kootenays, she’s lived in various places across Western Canada. She has grown to love the mountains and lush trees of the coast as an avid hiker, camper and adventure seeker. In her free time, she can usually be found with her spunky little dog exploring the wilderness or working on a new art project.

Anya has been involved with Proof of Care for the last three years and recently took on the role of Assistant Care Coordinator.  After graduating from the Health Care Assistant Program at Capilano University in North Vancouver, she took her studies to Masters University in California.

Anya’s passion for the elderly came at a young age as she helped take care of her grandmother in Bolivia.  She has since cherished working with the elderly and loves the deep and lasting relationships she has built with both the clients and their families.

Anya’s goal is to be an RN in the future however for the time being she is excited to bring her experience and passion for the elderly to the team at Proof of Care.

Maryam Naveed has been a Care Coordinator at Proof of Care since May 2016. Being raised in a family of artists, she knew that she had very different interests. Her passion was for Biology and caring for people. Nursing seemed like the perfect mix of what she wanted in a career. Her journey as a Nurse started in 2012 at a Care Home for people with a variety of neurological disorders and brain damage. Her experiences in the health care industry has strengthened her empathy and compassion for people of all walks of life.

She has always been interested in home health care and enjoyed caring for the senior population. As a nurse, she aims to care for her clients the way she would want to be cared for. After meeting with the Proof of Care team, it was clear that they had similar values and vision for what quality care should be.
