Good changes. Excellent changes. AMAZING changes in fact. And not just the blog itself – but the blogger. The lovely lady behind this here screen is slowly becoming a little more than a PSW and she – I – could not be more thrilled. I really need to stop talking in third person.
Not too long ago I posted about the OPSWA – Ontario Personal Support Worker Association – and it’s first annual conference which took place at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto. Slowly I have been getting to know OPSWA and it’s members by not only joining the organization but by becoming involved in working with them in anyway possible.
My heart still belongs – and will always belong – in LTC but as someone who takes their job and their career extremely seriously, I want to get as much information and education as possible. Not only that, but I want to help further educate others who are new to the field. I want to research government and find out WHAT it is they are doing for us. For YOU. I feel extremely privileged to be in this position.
And you know what, fellow PSWs? You can be to! What’s stopping you? OPSWA is the ONLY professional organization in the province who represents us. Even better, it is an organization run by PSWs. Not corporate phony bologna’s who wear suits and have no idea what it is we do. No. We get it. We’ve been there. I’m still there – working in the field – and don’t intend to leave. The more we work together as whole, we can make this fly. Not just OPSWA, but us, PSWs in general. We deserve the respect and believe you me, we’re going to get it.
Check us out guys.
You won’t be disappointed. Promise.
