TORONTO, Jan. 16, 2013 /CNW/ - Thanks to the generosity of three anonymous donors, George Brown College will dedicate a room in its Waterfront Campus to the city's unsung heroes - its Personal Support Workers. Representing the hundreds of selfless and committed caregivers across the city, a room in the college's homecare learning environment will be named for Lalaine de Vera, a 20-year Toronto caregiver from the Philippines.
The Lalaine de Vera Room will be in the college's Centre for Health Sciences' Health eHome - a replica apartment that provides students in George Brown's Personal Support Worker program with the hands-on experience they need to excel in their careers and provide quality in-home care for their clients.
|WHAT:|| A special event to recognize Lalaine de Vera, and all of Toronto's extraordinary
caregivers, for their hard work and service. De Vera will share her inspiring story,
and unveil a sign dedicating a room in her honour.
