October 18 has been designated by the B.C. government as Health Care Assistant Day. It marks an opportunity to recognize the health care assistants at Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) for their exceptional dedication and commitment to caring for patients, clients and residents across our region.
VCH would like to like to thank all health care assistants for the great work they do in delivering and supporting care for residents and clients in long-term care and assisted living homes. It has been two challenging years of the COVID-19 pandemic and VCH recognizes the courage and resilience it takes to work on the frontlines.
With our deepest gratitude, VCH celebrates you and shares our collective appreciation for your hard work and dedication to keeping those in our care safe and living with the best quality of life possible.
