Linlie, a Classic LifeCare Health Care Worker, says she loves that she still learns something new every day.
“My favourite part of the job is listening to people’s stories,” says Linlie. “I learn about their life and how they became successful. That’s why I love listening. I think it’s a good learning experience for me.”
Even after 15 years, Linlie still has to adapt and figure out how to approach different challenges.
“Dealing with dementia is very challenging, because their behavior is not expected compared to clients in extended care,” says Linlie.
Linlie enjoys the challenge though, and knows that she can always count on her coworkers if she needs help.
“Everybody is very accommodating and good with the residents,” she says. “You have to show that you like helping people. I love helping people.”
