My name is Richard Whitelocke, I am a proud PSW who has been working for Extendicare Laurier Manor for over 35 years. I am always excited and energized to come to work because engaging with my residents is very rewarding. I take my responsibilities seriously so my residents will benefit from great care. If you join our team you too will always feel welcomed.
My residents energize me every day with their personalities and great energy. I am always engaging them in whatever way I can and make them smile. They are like family.
Laurier Manor is a well-run home in Ottawa and Extendicare is managed by a great team of administrators and directors. The whole team at Extendicare has been navigating this unprecedented epidemic for the last 8 months and doing a great job providing all the necessary material to protect the frontline staff.
There are lots of other institutions in the city but I think my 35 years of service here tells you that I am happy to work for Extendicare There is always room for improvement, there is always something new to learn in this field as a PSW. You are never to old to learn new things that benefit you and your residents.
I am also blessed with a great team of diverse cultures at Extendicare and am fortunate to have a team of hard working and dedicated staff that put in 100% every day.
My success has derived from working for a place I call my second home.
