Rosabel

Activity Worker
Kiwanis Care Centre, North Vancouver

“It’s a really gratifying job because you get to see how people become happier and improve their quality of life. You see somebody who is depressed and lonely become joyful and happy—I’m usually the person people look forward to seeing, and that makes me happy. With this job, there’s a lot of satisfaction knowing that you’re making a difference in somebody’s life. I feel like I’m bringing joy to the residents here. I remember there was an elderly gentleman who passed away about a year ago from dementia. He was so positive about recreation therapy and enjoyed it so much and was so full of humour. He was like my unofficial assistant to help cheer people up. I miss him. When I started in recreation therapy 15 years ago, it wasn’t really recognized. Now it’s seen as an important part of wellness. There’s more awareness about how it’s more than just activities or a distraction… that there’s actual therapy involved.”
