Shawn Matyczuk

Resident Care Manager

Before entering the health care industry, Shawn pursued a career in the culinary arts, attending the Confederation College for Culinary and Hotel Management. After working in the field for eight years, he ventured to Toronto where he attended Elmcrest College, becoming a Registered Massage Therapist. After graduating, Shawn pursued a successful career as a senior massage therapist for the Fairmont Banff Springs.

A hiatus to travel the world led Shawn to Victoria and nursing. He graduated valedictorian from CDI College with his Licensed Practical Nursing diploma. Today, Shawn has several years of experience in the geriatric and complex care settings. His compassion and drive to contribute to the health and well-being of others lends itself to working with seniors, of which he says is like working with his grandparents every day – which is why he loves it.
