Personal Support Workers (PSW) are an essential part of healthcare who display their dedication and empathy with the work they do on the front line to make the lives of many others much better. In Ontario, PSW day is celebrated on May 19th to show recognition to these amazing individuals that often are not appreciated enough for the work and commitment they make. We have several PSWs at SCHC who are integral for various programs. Read below for a few quotes from some of them.
Below is from a former volunteer who currently works in two different SCHC programs, Nordia. See what she has to say below.
Next we have Jackie Brown who I had the pleasure of interviewing. See below for some behind the scenes content, and of course her thoughts about PSW day.
Last but not least, since May is also Asian Heritage Month, we also have Analyn one of our PSWs share her thoughts.
All in all, PSWs do a lot for others and deserve more appreciation and recognition for the amazing work they do. Make sure you visit our Careers page (www.schcontario.ca/schc-careers) as we often look for new PSWs to join our team!
