Aicha has been a Personal Support Worker (PSW) for 6 years and has a passion for the medical field. Aicha entered this field because she wanted to be able to help people in some way. Her favourite memories with clients are laughing the day away and talking about their younger years and family. When the weather is nice, they go on walks and talk which helps keep their bodies and minds active – while being able to learn more about them as well. One of her clients loves to watch documentaries and read books, so she tells Aicha all about them!
Some advice she would give a future PSW is to be gentle, caring, and to put yourself in their place or a loved one’s place to better understand them.
