Originally from Ottawa, in 2013 I moved to Fredericton NB. I have learned a lot here, but ready now to move home to Ottawa to work again in home support this time as a PSW. I am single, have two cats, enjoy reading, writing, cooking, baking and participating in church activities at the United Church of Canada in my spare time.

I began working as a Home Support Worker at Ottawa West Community Support in 2005 where I gained experience caring for older adults in multigenerational families. I have worked as a certified Personal Support Worker (PSW) in a nursing home in Fredericton, NB for the past four years. The experience I have gained providing care to many different types of people who have a wide variety of physical challenges and dementias has been invaluable, but I am now ready to advance in my career and move back home to Ottawa to work in home support as a PSW. Maintaining confidentiality and professional/personal boundaries is very important to me. I develop meaningful relationships with clients while maintaining the role of a healthcare professional customizing care to meet their unique needs. This approach to care is particularly important when working with people who have dementia as their ability to communicate verbally often diminishes over time and other ways to connect with them need to be established. Additional Experiences/Qualifications: My training as a Personal Support Worker (PSW) is my second career. I have held administrative positions in the past, but at the time found part-time work in-home support was a better career for me. Completing my PSW certification has provided me with increased responsibility and more variety in the care I provide to others. I am fully vaccinated against Covid-19.

Beverly has provided services to a variety of clients with a wide range of cognitive and physical ailments. Mostly working in the client’s home, without direct supervision, Beverly has had to use judgment, especially when faced with problematic or challenging situations. She has proven able to take initiative when needed, while staying within the limits of her role. Working with clients in their home, also means having to adapt to new circumstances. She is often asked to deal with family members and the dynamics specific to each household she visits. Beverly is aware of the losses her clients have experienced and recognizes how these losses may affect their health and general wellbeing. She always strives to find her client’s strengths and to use these as the building blocks to their relationship. I have known Beverly since October 2005 when she first applied to work as a Home Support Worker at Ottawa West Community Support. She is a consistent, reliable and committed worker.

I have known Suzanne for two years at the nursing home where I currently work. She is "a family member of a dementia patient who has been able to gain more insight to what our Mother is going through and how we can help in her journey through your caring and thoughtful ways. You were the first staff who truly showed that you cared about our Mother, that she was more than a resident, that there was a person behind her disease."
