Administrative Volunteer (Current Employee), Ottawa, ONDecember 27, 2013
Although I was an unpaid volunteer at this establishment, I knew that my contribution was highly valued by my co-workers. Working at the Red Cross is my dream and the work that is done there is the reason why I studied politics at university and for that I find it extremely fulfilling.

Personal Support worker (Former Employee), Kingston, ONJune 11, 2013
Pros: lots of learning experiences
Cons: driving
My typical day working for red cross home care was driving from one clients home to the other. Preparing meal,medication reminders, cleaning, applying or taking off compression stockings. We didn't really see any of our co-workers. The there was nothing really hard about the job but the driving times between clients was very un-organized by the company. – more... The most enjoyable part of the job was spending some one on one with each client and learning more about them and appreciating what we do for them. – less

Customer Service Assistant (Volunteer) (Current Employee), Vancouver, BCMay 12, 2013
I love working with other volunteers who come from different backgrounds. We all want to contribute more to the community.

The position is flexible and challenging, but that is also the beaty of it. We never get tired of doing searches and answering all sorts of questions on the phone.

Personal Support Worker (Former Employee), Woodstock, ontarioApril 17, 2013
Pros: conversation and knowledge gained
Cons: driving distances, unclean homes, prolonged problem solving
A typical day at work was caring for the senior population, although they can be challenging they are a source of conversations of life.
I learned much of how home care has changed over the years and the importance of independance for as long as possible. Although I worked most of the time with great staff, there were ocassions when the direct in the – more... field contact staff were not as supportive or understanding of the particulars surrounding the PSW field of work.
The hardest part of the job was the split shift and the inconsistant balance of work and home life due to shedualing problems. Althought the driving all over the country side from house to house was not the best aspect, there was a sense of self reliance and responsibilty with the enjoyment of the face to face one on one interaction with the persons I was caring for. – less

Respect and good care sometimes a chat is all they need, they are grandparents, aunts and uncles and sometimes parents. They all deserve the best care I can give them
