Unifor proudly celebrates Continuing Care Assistant (CCA) Week, Oct 11-15, 2021, organized by the Health Association of Nova Scotia (HANS) as part of Continuing Care Month.

"The amount of compassion and hard work provided by CCAs should not only be recognized over a week but every single day of the year," said Jerry Dias, Unifor National President. "To all our CCA members, thank you for all you do in protecting our most vulnerable in society. Your resilience and grit during the pandemic should not go unnoticed."

This year's Continuing Care Month theme is Continuing Care: Your Home, Our Passion. The theme aims to highlight the contribution, difference and sacrifice that CCAs make in the lives of residents in need of care and support.

"The care, love, companionship that CCAs have for patients and residents is truly remarkable," said Linda MacNeil, Unifor Atlantic Regional Director. "Due to the pandemic, our CCA members faced further mental, physical and emotional barriers at work. These barriers didn't deter them but rather serve as further motivation to provide the best quality of care for patients and residents."
