BC Care Awards – Care Provider of the Year Nominee Leonida Orser

Every year, the BC Care Awards celebrate care providers who go above and beyond delivering care to our seniors.

In this nominee profile, we feature Leonida Orser from Bayshore Home Care Solutions for her work enriching the lives of seniors.

Why did you decide to work in seniors’ care?

I decided to work in seniors care because of a volunteer job that I had in an extended care home. It touched my heart when I saw fellow human beings needing support.

What do you wish people knew about working with seniors?

I wish people knew that working with seniors is rewarding because you have an opportunity to make a real difference in their lives.

What’s your favourite part about working in seniors’ care?

My favourite part about working in seniors care is when an elderly person says “thank-you, you make my life better and more meaningful because of your compassion and kindness.”

BC Care Award winners will be announced in early January. The awards ceremony will take place on February 19th, 2017 at the Fairmont Empress Victoria. Registration is now open for BCCPA members and invited guests.
