Formerly a Registered Practical Nurse (RPN) for 25 years, she decided to continue in the medical field as a Personal Support Worker (PSW) in 2020. Doris has lots of energy that she gives to helping people and giving guidance to families that come to her. She defines care as giving the best care you can to whoever comes to you for help! Her favourite activities to do with clients include going on walks, looking at family photos and hearing stories, puzzles, and adult colouring books! The activities are tailored to her client’s interests, keeping them engaged. Overall, seeing the joy on her client’s face when she arrives are her favourite moments!
What she wants future PSWs to know is that the career is very personally fulfilling!
