Being a part of the community is engraved in everything Kimberley Kiemeney does. Whether within her work life at Homecare Solutions for Everyone (HSE), attending or volunteering at community-focused events or serving as a Winnipeg Chamber Ambassador, giving back is intrinsic to Kimberley’s identity.

“In all aspects of my life, I believe in working with purpose and dedication to achieve dreams while being a leader in building a community through caring,” said Kimberley.

“At HSE, we actively engage in our community through sponsorship, volunteering, and attending events for organizations. I’ve served as the Entertainment Chair of Teddy Bear Picnic for 25 years and have been fundraising for various organizations for 15 years. I am currently actively involved in roles such as Director for the Winnipeg Women’s Conference, Ambassador for the Winnipeg Women’s Community, and a member of Hustle and Charm, as well as a business member with The Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce and The Women’s Enterprise Centre of Manitoba.”

Kimberley serves as the Chief Marketing Officer and Client Care Manager at HSE, offering professional and compassionate homecare and childcare services in Winnipeg. As a dedicated Winnipeg-based business, they see homes as central hubs for support and empowerment, where they bring together healthcare, technology, and community resources to enhance physical health, emotional well-being, cognitive stimulation, and social engagement.

Her role at HSE is to implement their vision of “Building Community Through Caring,” fostering opportunities for engagement, support, volunteering, and active participation within our city. This involves connecting their clients with the vital resources they require. 

“To deliver the finest care, I collaborate with community partners, families, and resources to craft highly personalized care plans tailored to each client and their family. HSE’s approach is holistic, aimed at providing comprehensive family support rather than just task-based assistance,” said Kiemeney.

Kimberley joined the HSE team on July 4, 2023. While her career in homecare started only six and a half years ago, she has over 13 years in childcare, 30 years in management, and extensive time as a family caregiver. She is committed to continuously enhancing her knowledge and expertise by enrolling in courses offered by organizations such as the Alzheimer’s Society, Childcare Services, Truth and Reconciliation training, and Compassionate Care courses through Palliative MB. This dedication allows her to support clients and their families better.

Throughout her career, Kimberley has had role models, both professionally and personally, who have impacted her career, but Kimberley also looks to The Winnipeg Chamber as instrumental in her growth. As an active and proud member of The Chamber, Kimberley is privileged to connect with local business owners and expand her professional network through meetings and events.

“The Chamber has opened doors to invaluable resources and expert-led training opportunities. However, the most significant benefit has been the opportunity to build relationships with brilliant leaders,” said Kimberley.
