SEIU-West celebrates the unsung heroes that provide love and care behind the scenes – caregivers. They are a vital link in the quality and skilled care provided to those who depend on it in retirement homes, community care, long-term care and acute care.
Caregivers Week is a special time for us to be outspoken about our support and appreciation for those who work or volunteer their time to care for others. The time that is spent with those in need is priceless, and our care system could not function without the hard work of caregivers – in fact, it is estimated that there are roughly 8 million Canadians providing unpaid care. While we all hope for a universal health care system that can ensure accessible health care for all, we certainly value the necessary work that all caregivers provide.
In recognition of Caregivers Week, SEIU-West wants you to nominate a caregiver who inspires you and tell us why. Both you and your nominee will receive a great prize!
Please email your nominations to Catherine.Gendron@seiuwest.ca. The deadline to participate March 26, 2017.
