Hiring Manager Tammy

In the past few weeks, I have had the pleasure of interviewing many internationally trained nurses. It is so wonderful to find out that many of them have spent a great deal of time during their studies caring for the elderly.  Some have worked in outreach programs caring for seniors in small, rural communities, in countries where equipment and supplies are scarce. They have described situations where they have had to use items their patient had at hand in their homes to “McIver” (create) their own equipment, even a bed lift! These highly skilled nurses come to Homecare West excited to understand Canadian nursing, in Vancouver.  Their thoughtfulness, sensitivity and desire to do a great job truly inspires me.

Homecare West workplaces are our client’s private homes, retirement communities and complex care facilities.  We look for certified health care assistants and international nurses who can bring their training and life experiences to our clients in their homes.

As a company, we nurture individuals who share our passion for senior care and celebrate all successes each shared experience brings.

Homecare West was founded by Tammy Watson, July 2004. At that time Tammy was a single mom who had recently lost both of her young senior parents. From this experience she expanded her understanding of what it’s like to care for a parent at home. “I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to bring my personal experience into many conversations I have with families needing care for their parents”.

Tammy has worked most of her life with seniors, starting with her first job as a kitchen helper in a small intermediate care centre in the Fraser Valley.

“My favorite resident, Nanny Higgins taught me to fold tea towels quite properly”.  “Nanny Higgins had Alzheimer’s disease, she didn’t remember my name or that she had already taught me how to fold, but she sparkled when she laughed and when she winked at me as she left the kitchen, I felt we shared a special secret; I was 16 years old”.

After many years and 100’s of properly folded tea towels, Homecare West was born.

We offer our employees professional development and cultivate a professional environment in which our employees are challenged to give their best; a desire to practice kindness and compassion in all they do is fostered.

We value a diverse workplace. We believe in inclusion and commit to a work environment free from narrow-mindedness.

We strongly believe in supporting seniors to live independently and well in their own home, where ever they call home.
