Being a psw in the community is a very fulfilling career. I feel a strong sense of community and feel very connected in the lives of all my clients. I love having enough time with each client to give them what they need while having fun and respecting their individual needs. Small things matter to them like allowing them to pick out what they want to wear in the morning, or which way they want their hair combed or having a sing along session while doing a shower or learning how to say thank you in a new language or giving that extra encouragement to do those extra exercises. I also get to work with such a diverse population of different ages and cultures and disabilities and get to see them enjoying the freedom to stay at home and remain closer to their friends and family while living a more meaningful life and I'm able to do this while working a flexible schedule to meet the needs of my own life and family as well:).
Jacqueline, London PSW
6 years ago I decided to leave long-term care and join the community as a PSW!
At first I was worried about what it would be like to take care of someone in their home as I was use to working in a setting where I had no time to spend with the residents!
As I got to get to know my clients in their homes, I knew that community was where I wanted to be!
I find it very rewarding to see a smiling face when I come to the door and a big thank you when I leave! Knowing that I made some one happy is a reward in itself! I have also become a friend and a shoulder to cry on when someone is having a bad day! To know that I am there for them makes them feel secure!
Independence is very important to me and I want to be that person to help someone maintain that independence as long as they are able to! I love helping people and to know that I put a smile on their face makes me happy and my job more rewarding then ever!
