AHS WELLNESS EXPO: Nurturing Our Frontline Workers
It all started with a need to nurture the ones who give care every day. “As health care workers, we focus on taking care of our patients, and sometimes that means we forget about ourselves. The Wellness Fair reminds us that we each have unique needs and that our well-being matters too,” says Candice Edey, member of your hospitals’ Wellness Committee.
At the event, the Foundation has the honour of talking face to face with your hospital’s frontline health care workers. We share smiles and stories with frontline staff including maintenance staff to nurses to lab technicians to doctors. It is all about making time for one another and building community these small things make us stronger during the tough times.
In February of each year, the Wellness Committee sets up the Fair inside the hospital and highlights self-care and wellness ideas for staff. Your support allows our Foundation to be there!
