Supporting Others

December 8, 2020

Looking out for others comes naturally for Heather Greer.

As a caregiver both on and off the job — Heather raised her children by herself while also working as a care aide at Castleview Care Centre — she is always looking for opportunities to support others.

One such opportunity came when her manager told her SafeCare BC was seeking frontline staff to be part of a new committee. That committee — The Frontline Communications Working Group — was created to give members a chance to be a voice for their peers. Naturally, Heather signed on, becoming a founding member of the group.

From day one, Heather brought her enthusiasm to each of the group’s meetings. This puts her in good company. Despite only meeting in-person on the rare occasion, Heather describes the group as a strong community. “I have never met one person involved with SafeCare and the group who wasn’t passionate about the work they do,” Heather says.

And passion for her work is something Heather is full of — particularly when it comes to working with students and new care aides.

“I really enjoy taking a hands-on approach with my students,” she says. Teaching is an opportunity for her to pass on her knowledge to new workers, setting them up for success. Heather not only draws from her own experience but from ideas presented in The Frontline Communications Working Group.

Even with her extensive experience, Heather still realizes the importance of learning from others. “Working with SafeCare has made me become more aware of workplace health and safety,” she says.

Now, after years of her service, she is stepping down from The Frontline Communications Working Group as she transitions from full time work to casual. Much like she supports her students entering the job, she is passing the torch to a new generation of members to the group. Her advice to those interested in becoming part of the group?

“Go for it. My favourite memories are just being part of the calls and talking to great people.”

If you are interested in becoming part of The Frontline Communications Working Group, you can submit an application.
