Health and Social Services Assistants (HSSAs) provide a wide range of care, from assistance with hygiene and dressing to monitoring and medication. These professionals see their clients as whole people—monitoring their morale, health, the dangers they face and the abuses to which they may be exposed.
The follow-ups that the HSSAs conduct with our CIUSSS’s multidisciplinary workers help to greatly improve the lives of seniors who live in their own homes. On April 11, Health and Social Services Assistants Day, our CIUSSS’s HSSAs were thanked for enabling these seniors to continue to live in their own, familiar environment for as long as possible. For more information about the work of the health and social services assistants, we invite you to meet Vasiliki Kalogeropoulos, Rosel Thomas and Osako Omba.
