The Story of Sandy
Sandy took the Health Care Assistant course in 1974 in Simcoe at the hospital as they were building the Norfolk Hospital Nursing Home in ’74/’75. They wanted to hire the 10 top students from the HCA course and Sandy was one of the top 10 picked. Sandy started working as a Health Care Assistant on May 28th 1975 and continued that for 19 and a half years. Sandy then switched to housekeeping for another 5 years on 3E. “I wanted to make it 25 years but retired November 1, 1999 with 24 and a half years of service.”
Sandy says she loved caring for the patients and talking to them.
