John is a recreational worker at a long-term care facility and another one of our SEIU-West Front Line Heroes.
Providing fun activities during a pandemic is not easy but John is offering some advice from his Extendicare headquarters: “Keep on smiling and let your love shine through.”
John loves to engage with the residents and he said “I love to know that I am part of the reason that they are smiling”.
John also helps residents with their emotional, social, spiritual and physical aspects of their lives by providing recreation programs.
One of John’s favourite memories was when they raised money for Telemiracle in their workplace and appeared on TV to make their donation on behalf of the long-term care home and resident council.
Period poverty describes the struggle faced by women and girls who cannot afford the cost of menstrual products, like pads or tampons. Having a period is a regular occurrence for 50% of the population; however for those who cannot afford basic sanitary supplies, it can become a monthly ordeal that limits their ability to go to school or work. Access to period products is a necessity, yet 1 in 3 Canadian women have sacrificed something else to buy pads or tampons.
