Celebrate Home Care Month!

November is Home Care Month and SEIU-West is proud to celebrate alongside our valued Home Care members.

Home Care is an essential part of our health care system – it allows people to stay in the comfort of their home while ensuring their health care needs are met. Health Care Providers who work in Home Care visit clients’ homes to ensure they have assistance with their personal care including medication administration or assistance, dressing changes, oral care as well as non-medical needs such as bathing and meal preparation. Importantly, those who work in Home Care also provide valued relationships that enhance clients’ lives. As many clients face the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, these relationships are especially vital. It’s no wonder those who provide home care services are called frontline heroes.

Yet those in power have seen home care services cut by 8% since 2014 in Saskatchewan – it is vital that we connect with our newly elected MLAs to let them know this important service for seniors must be restored.

In recognition of Home Care Month, we invite you to participate in our contest! Let us know how a Home Care Worker has benefited your wellbeing – those who enter could win a Visa gift card or SEIU-West swag! Please note: only SEIU-West members are eligible to enter.

Please send your entry to actions@seiuwest.ca – the deadline to enter is December 1, 2020.

To all our SEIU-West Home Care Health Care Providers, we thank you!!
