Sukhpreet has always been passionate about caring for seniors. In 2020, Sukhpreet took a leap of fate and moved from her hometown in India to Vancouver, Canada. As the nursing qualifications differed in both countries, Sukhpreet was no longer able to work as a Registered Nurse and started exploring alternative options. She began working in the banking sector but soon found it wasn’t for her.
Missing the healthcare industry, Sukhpreet was longing for a sense of job satisfaction and fulfillment. A friend, who was employed as a Health Care Aide at Classic LifeCare, introduced Sukhpreet to the idea of working in senior care. She joined the Classic LifeCare Vancouver team in July, stepping into the role of a Health Care Aide, and has rediscovered her sense of purpose.
Sukhpreet’s journey in caring for seniors is fueled by genuine affection. Her long-term aspiration is to become a Registered Nurse in Canada.
The Advantage of Caring for Seniors
When asked about her experience as a Health Care Aide at Classic LifeCare, Sukhpreet says:
“I always wanted a career where I could take care of seniors. To me, taking care of seniors is not hard, it is inspiring and fulfilling. Seniors are integral members of our community, and I am fortunate to spend my days assisting them in their times of need. Seniors have so much wisdom, it is a pleasure to hear their stories and spend time with them.”
“My favourite thing about working as a Health Care Aide is being someone that seniors can rely on. Seeing their trust in me motivates me to work more efficiently and to provide the best possible care for them. Every day is precious, which is truly unique to the role of a Health Care Aide.“
