Meet Benny Mathew
Health Care Aide, Killam Health Centre
September 29, 2021
When Benny Mathew began working as a health care aide at Killam Health Centre, the Edmonton resident didn’t expect to find a second home there. But he was quickly drawn in by the strong community spirit that defines Killam, and four years later, he continues to work there part time.
“I’m not a city person; I like smaller communities,” Benny says. “People are very friendly in Killam, and it feels like being part of a family because everyone knows each other. My co-workers are really nice, which is one of the reasons I like it there so much. I know that if I need anything, they are there for me.”
Benny is proud to work in Killam Health Centre’s new resident building, which provides supportive living, long-term care and dementia care under one roof. This design ensures residents can stay at the site even as their needs evolve, and the resident-centred care philosophy aligns well with Benny’s passion for serving seniors.
“I like helping those who aren’t able to do certain things themselves,” Benny says. “For me, this is a service and not just a job. When I help residents, I treat them as I would my own parents.”
