Standing Up for Retired Persons: A Conversation with Ashley Fox

Q: What inspires you to get up every morning?

Ashley: The chance to make a difference in someone's life.

Q: Why did you decide to specialize in post-retirement and in-home care?

Ashley: After graduation, I became a Charge Nurse at a local retirement home. I truly enjoyed it, so I decided to stay in geriatrics! I worked for a few other homes in front line nursing before becoming a Director of Care at a local home with Independent Living and Assisted Living care. I made the change to community because I worked as a Personal Support Worker in community many years and enjoyed it - I was ready for a change and I LOVE it! :)

Q: If you could change one thing about your life, what would it be and why?

Ashley: I don't think I would change anything because it has all made me into the person I am today.

Q: If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be and why?

Ashley: Funding! If I could change anything - I would ensure more funding for Community services, Retirement Home programs and the local Long Term Care homes. Our seniors deserve the best!

Q: Who is your biggest inspiration?

Ashley: I have too many - I really look up to a lot of nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, doctors and other health professionals in my field. Each day I am learning more from them to be the best nurse I can be and provide the best care to my patients.

Thanks Ashley!
