Support Workers - Our Assisted Living Program

Thinking about support work at the Centre?  Want to know what its like to work in our Assisted Living Program?  Hear from our amazing staff:

"Being a PSW for the Centre's Assisted Living Program is rewarding and fun!  We have a great team, supportive leadership and appreciative clients.  Every member is valued!  I can only hope this program exists when I am in need.  Those involved are just wonderful!" MA

"I love working for the West Elgin Community Health Centre!  Everyone is very kind and helpful and I feel very supported by my co-workers and by management.  The clients are very respectful and feel like family because I've gotten to know all of them so well" DC

I love working as part of the Assisted Living Team because my co-workers are some of the most compassionate and caring people I have every met.  Our work is intimate and there can be delicate lines to walk.  We know that even though we do our best, perfection is not required.  This allows us the freedom to build trust, rapport and respect not only with clients but with each other" A

"I like working for the Centre because its close to home, the staff and management are very professional and friendly.  When you are at work its always a team effort to get the client's bookings done and they are happy with what you do" A

"When I first considered the Centre it was because it was closer to home.  I was mentally drained from my first employer.  Little did I know that the Centre and the co-workers would make me feel like family and all the negativity just gets washed away when I'm there.  I like how the job and environment are different from a long-term care home.  Being a PSW is so important as it gives so many people the chance to stay home and have independence.  If I could only work at one place full-time, it definately would be the Centre" MM
