Sylvia Warren, Placement Coordinator at Western Kings Memorial Health Centre in Berwick graduated from nursing school 37 years ago in St. John’s, Newfoundland. Warren started with Nova Scotia Health’s Continuing Care program in 2013 and has been supporting individuals in their transition to long-term care for over eight years.
“My role as a placement coordinator is to help get people who need long-term care on the wait list and then transition them to the appropriate homes depending on their needs. But there’s so much more to it than that,” explained Warren. “It’s about looking at the individual, who they are and finding the best fit for them.”
