His name is Ed Arvelin. He is a Registered Practical Nurse (RPN) with St. Joseph’s Care Group in Thunder Bay. He is as also Chair of OPSEU’s Mental Health Division. Patients at the Thunder Bay mental health facility can be there for three months or sometimes the rest of their lives. This often builds a close relationship between caregiver and patient. Ed says these patients feel like an extended family. To watch a short video of Ed, click the window below.
Would you like to live on the Diablogue banner for a month or two? We’re looking to profile the hundreds of professions that make up the 43,000 members represented by OPSEU’s Health Care Divisional Council. Whether you cook in a hospital, travel to client homes to deliver physiotherapy, or work in a public health unit, we’d like to feature you. It just involves a couple of pictures and a short video profile. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are a OPSEU health care member and would like to promote your profession on our banner. Don’t be shy! We’ll be looking for someone new in April.
