Kiseme Kasongo is an African refugee who has found great satisfaction through her employment with TURN Community Services. This is her story.
Coming from Africa, I have been working in a TURN care facility since my arrival. At TURN, I have been embraced as family and I am grateful for all the benefits I have received. My passion working at TURN is the people. I have worked with great people and it is a privilege to be here for a long time. My strength is my caring nature, friendly persona, professional training and experience to ensure that I provide the best care possible. TURN has helped me reach my goal to achieve. I love my work and look forward to being here for a long time.
I am well-versed in helping the patients in their routine activities, like feeding, bathing and grooming. I am a keen learner and have the ability to remain calm in emergency situations. I have enjoyed working with my Coordinator; their ability to help me achieve my goal and be able to have a place I call work. The people skills I have learned assist me in boosting residents’ morale and to maintain their dignity even in times of physical distress.
