What it's like to work at VHA Home HealthCare

Supporting health care in Ontario

We are a not-for-profit organization providing 24/7, multi-lingual health care and support services to Ontarians of all ages and levels of need. At VHA, our culture is centered around our clients. We’re a community-oriented, compassionate team who believes in providing the best quality care.

Supporting independence

Our vision is that everyone receives community support and home health care when, where and how they want it, and our mission is to create possibilities for more independence. Our core belief is that care must be client-driven, collaborative and committed.

Supporting an enriching experience

In-home personal support and health care provide a unique and rewarding experience that you won’t find in a hospital. It’s a different kind of care, one that offers clients the extra support and attention they need, and gives you the opportunity to get to know them on a personal level.

Every day when I go home I’m so happy because I know that I made the difference in people’s lives. When I’m working with them (clients), the way they’re happy, the way they thank me. I can say that I can make a smile in people’s lives. And each time I can see that, for me it’s so rewarding.
