BC’s Health Minister and our local MLA Hon. Adrian Dix declared October 18 as Health Care Assistant Day across the province. In response, the Three Links Care Centre hosted a celebration to recognize the inspiring skill, dedication and compassion of the health care assistants who make such a tremendous contribution to the quality of life and care of the seniors we serve.

While Health Care Assistants have different job titles (Community Health Worker, Residential Care Aide, Home Support Worker, Long-Term Care Aide, Home Health Aide, Continuing Care Assistant, Personal Care Aide) they all have an unwavering affection for seniors who cannot care for themselves – including many veterans who have proudly served our country.

As we head into the holiday season, we want to thank all the health care assistants in BC for their commitment to seniors’ care. We want to recognize students training to become health care assistants in the future. And, we want to acknowledge all the health care assistants who have served and retired, including those who have worked at Three Links over our 36 years in the Renfrew Collingwood neighbourhood.   THANK YOU!
