Margeret Hutchinson, Susan Swinson and Kim Roberts have been helping the elderly at Extendicare Haliburton for nearly as long as the facility has existed.

The long-term care home celebrated the womens’ accomplishments at a Sept. 22 awards ceremony. “I love my job,” said Hutchinson, who has worked at the home for more than 45 years, first in the kitchens and now in the laundry department. She said the residents and other staff have made it a great place to work. Swinson, recognized for 45 years of service as a PSW, and Roberts, a PSW for 40 years, both said residents were their favourite part of the job as well. “It’s the staff too,” Swinson added. “We’re like a family.”
