Between March 1st and 7th, learn more about Social Work Week in Ontario hosted by OASW  (Ontario Association of social workers). This year’s theme is “You Are Not Alone”.

Social workers

In March 2021, more than 20,000 registered social workers across Ontario are celebrating Social Work Week. And at Visavie, we have always known that the role of a social worker is irreplaceable and phenomenal. They work tirelessly alongside families, communities and organizations. We therefore wanted to recognize their exceptional dedication and incredible efforts, especially after this very difficult year. They were indeed on the front lines of COVID-19 and despite the situation, they continued to serve the population perfectly.

Social workers spend endless hours assessing, assisting, guiding, directing and providing resources to their clients in order to resolve their problems. Visavie has always been there to support them and their clients in their search for a retirement home. Therefore, we recognize and above all appreciate the opportunity to collaborate with social workers. They are an integral part of society and our communities could not function without them or without their support.

A deserved recognition

Social Work Week is a chance to highlight the essential role and importance of social workers in Ontario. It’s also the perfect opportunity to take the time to learn more about the profession’s many positive contributions. Social workers are all too often unsung heroes. But they play a vital role in helping people from all around and help them to enjoy life to the fullest. During Social Work Week, we hope you learn more about this amazing profession.

You are not alone

The theme of this year’s campaign is “You Are Not Alone”. It carries messages of compassion and caring in a time when many feel alone and go through difficult times. The campaign aims to raise awareness on the subject of mental health and promotes accessible and essential supports.

Their slogan illustrates very well the title of their campaign “Social workers: real experts for real life”.

The essential work of skilled, compassionate and committed social workers benefits all Ontarians. It is an honor for Visavie to celebrate the important contributions of social work professionals to seniors and their families. Thank you for your support and your outstanding work.
