St. Martin Hospital, Community Health Worker

Did you know there are 35,000 Health Care Assistants in BC? October 18th, 2019 marks Health Care Assistant (HCA) Day in BC, and we’re recognizing our hardworking Health Care Assistants, including Care Aides and Community Health Workers across St. Martin Hospital.

Community Health Worker (St. Martin Hospital), Wendy specializes in palliative care and enjoys her role supporting clients in their homes. She finds it both rewarding and a privilege to be with someone at the end of life. Wendy was first inspired to work in health care after her mom passed away from ovarian cancer 10 years ago. After spending many hours with her in palliative care, she decided she wanted to contribute to health care and went back to school to become a CHW.

 Nine years later, Wendy is happy to continue her career with VCH. She feels supported in her role, and well equipped to support clients in the Community. She recalls one instance when a client needed a lift in their home, and it was something they worked on implementing immediately. This ensured the client could remain at home and maneuver safely.

 Wendy values the importance of continuing education.  She takes the opportunity to attend workshops and applies what she learns to her everyday work. “The information I learn at workshops is helpful in the client approach and the care we provide.”

At VCH, HCA’s support diverse clients across a variety of sites and communities. To learn more about the HCA career opportunities at St. Martin Hospital – visit:

But on Aristotle’s view, the lives of individual human beings are invariably linked together in a social context. In the Peri PoliV he speculated about the origins of the state, described and assessed the relative merits of various types of government, and listed the obligations of the individual citizen.

This is Photoshop’s version of Lorem Ipsum. Proin gravida nibh vel velit auctor aliquet.
Aenean sollicitudin, lorem quis bibendum auctor, nisi elit consequat ipsum, nec sagittis sem nibh id elit.
Duis sed odio sit amet nibh vulputate cursus a sit amet mauris. Morbi accumsan ipsum velit. Nam nec tellus a odio tincidunt auctor a ornare odio. Sed non mauris vitae erat consequat auctor eu in elit.

If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Aenean non enim ut enim fringilla adipiscing id in lorem. Quisque aliquet neque vitae lectus tempus consectetur. Aliquam erat volutpat. Nunc eu nibh nulla, id cursus arcu.

Vestibulum ante ipsum primis in faucibus orci luctus et ultrices posuere cubilia Curae;
Nam at velit nisl. Aenean vitae est nisl. Cras molestie molestie nisl vel imperdiet. Donec vel mi sem.
