Social Worker Testimonials

I love working for Age-Wise Solutions Inc. because in providing social work services in long-term care, I have the opportunity to work with a diversified caseload on a weekly basis. I’ve been able to support and offer coping strategies to various residents and families throughout the many changes that have come in their lives, specifically during the COVID-19 pandemic, which has been challenging yet very rewarding in this particular field. The experiences I’ve had and the people I’ve met through working with Age-Wise will continue to assist me and expand my skill-set in my professional life for years to come. Thanks!!

I retired after completing a twenty-five-year career as a Social Worker at the Children's Aid Society. I missed the contact with clients and staff so I started looking for a part-time job that would offer me the flexibility I wanted. I applied for a job at Age-Wise Solutions Inc to work in the Nursing Home system with the elderly. This has been an amazing job for me. My hours are tailored to my needs and I have been so supported by the staff at Age-Wise and the staff at the Nursing Home. On top of working for a wonderfully helpful organization I love the client population I am serving. I look forward to going to work every week and could not have applied for a better job.

Working as a Consulting Social Worker with Age-Wise is one of the most rewarding careers I've had because of the valuable work Social Workers contribute to the everchanging population in long-term care. Age-Wise provides its Social Workers with a supportive community to advance their professional knowledge as well as receive case specific support from other social workers and the Clinical Lead. The diverse client population provides endless opportunities to support vulnerable people in varying stages of life which keeps each work day interesting! Thank you,

After almost 20 years working for Children's Aid I decided to retire early but was not ready to quit working completely. Little did I realize that working for Age-Wise Solutions would become "my ideal." I had never worked in a long-term care home before. This job came with new challenges but also with such great rewards (even during these unprecedented times). I love to work with residents and their families to help ease their worries, their fears and their grief. This allows them to focus on enjoying life and its simplest pleasures. " Their joy becomes your joy!". It has been a truly wonderful experience!
