Caregiving: Enriching Our Employees Lives

Thursday July 14, 2016

Our caregivers feel honoured knowing that the support they provide makes a significant difference to many clients and their families. Vernon, who has worked for Seniors for Seniors as a driver companion and a handy person since August 2015, says providing care to his clients has enriched his life more than he ever anticipated.

Upon deciding to take early retirement, Vernon went looking for a part time position that would keep him engaged in the community and allow him to interact with people. He remembered hearing a radio advertisement for Seniors for Seniors which inspired him to contact his local office. After speaking with the manager about the different types of services that he could be involved in, Vernon knew the role as driver companion and handy person would fit his skills and suit his needs.

Over the past year while working for Seniors for Seniors, Vernon has had a lot of great experiences and had the pleasure of helping many wonderful clients. “All of my clients express their gratitude,” said Vernon, “I have noticed that they value their independence and appreciate having access to a service that allows them to keep it with dignity.” Vernon always knew he could be of help but since he started working for Seniors for Seniors he realized that his support is making a significant difference for a lot of people.

I would like you to know how pleased we were with J. during the months she provided overnight care for my father. J. was always very pleasant and patient and did many extras to help dad. She went beyond her required responsibilities and we are grateful for her kindness.
