Personal Support Worker

I was in tech sales for many years and was miserable. One day I came across the Orchard View by the Mississippi’s PSW training program.  They supported me throughout the training and hired me immediately upon graduation. I am happy to work for a company where I see my work making a difference. Orchard View by the Mississippi allowed me to take control of my development and follow my own career path.

2 years ago, after 18 years with the same company, I joined the Orchard View Dietary Department as a dietary server.

It has been an amazing adventure ever since!

Orchard View By The Mississippi states on there website “You will find this little piece of paradise where retirement living blossoms.”

My life blossoms as a dietary employee at Orchard View!

I have always found that meeting and assisting residents is the most rewarding!

No day is the same, and I am never bored! (I am a distraction and laugh way more than I should) Okay, Okay- I sometimes skip out on the dietary team members to go participate in Recreational Activities while I should be preparing lunch. True story!

There are many variations of duties that are required to be a dietary server. This has led me to become a Dietary Aide and to continue on with studies through Flemming College with Nutrition and Hospitality. As dietary restrictions change and diets need to be modified I have decided I need to be eager and enquisitive. With the support of our Dietary Director and her flexibility with hours of employment; I have maintained employment between Orchardview and AGH-both within the dietary field.

I would encourage anyone who would like an interesting and challenging career to look into Orchardview! The friendship and compassion I have witnessed from all staff towards residents is absolutely phenomenal! Everyone, no matter which department, is ready to help and support residents using all resources available. This does not just make us a team but a family like no other!

I feel very lucky everyday when I get to come into work. I get to see all the Residents and staff that I have grown close to in the year that I have worked here. We have a saying here that we are the Orchard View family and it really does feel that way. We help each other, we care for each other and we look after each other. This is really special to be able to come to work and feel that way.

Orchard view by the Mississippi has been a part of my life for almost 5 years now. I have worn many hats while working here; Reception, dietary, housekeeping and now recreation. Orchard View isn’t only a job to me, it is an opportunity to grow in work and life. Many residents don’t see me as just an employee, but a person that has been on the journey with them. I enjoy coming to work because not only am I doing something I love but the people I do it for are so appreciative. They might not all be able to tell me but the smile on their face does. I’m so lucky to have had the opportunity to grow here at Orchard View.
