Thomas Martin has found his calling.

A skilled carpenter who enjoys the company of seniors, Thomas started working in the maintenance department at Carveth Care Centre in early 2021.

He liked his job immediately.

“It’s a lot different pace than where I used to work,” the 31-year-old says with a smile from the popular retirement lodge and long-term care home in Gananoque. “Everyone is really friendly here.”

Responsible for lawn maintenance, painting and general repairs, Thomas describes his job as ‘everything and anything’.

“Tom is a great worker,” says Maintenance Supervisor Mark Campbell. “He has been very eager to learn about the home and the residents.”

Married with one-child, Thomas was born and raised in Gananoque. He currently lives in Glenburnie, a small community north of Kingston.

When he’s not at work, he likes to spend time with his family and play sports such as hockey and golf.

Asked to describe himself, Thomas uses words such as easygoing and loyal. His dream is to support his family and have more children. 

“I’ve always had a soft spot for the elderly. I like working around them,” he explains. “I’m grateful this job became available. I appreciate the trust shown to me by the maintenance manager and owner.”
