BC Care Awards – Care Provider of the Year Nominee Donna Collins

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 Donna Collins from Brookside Lodge in Surrey for her work supporting the safety of residents and team members.

Why is this nomination meaningful to you?

This nomination is meaningful to me because its an honour to be recognized by others for my hard work and for my focus on person-centered/quality of care.

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

My favourite part of working in seniors care is putting a smile on seniors’ faces and giving them the one-on-one attention, care, and treating them as if they were my own grandparents.

What made you want to work with seniors? 

I became a healthcare assistant due to my exposure to mental health dealing with my mom and caring for her. I also wanted a rewarding job which, at the end of the day, makes me feel that I helped someone and made a difference.

The BC Care Awards will take place on February 19th, 2017 at the Fairmont Empress Victoria. Registration is now open for BCCPA members and invited guests.
