The Personal Support Worker program prepares people to work in a variety of community health care settings. Personal Support Workers work closely with people, helping them where they live. They are part of a health care team that includes nurses, physicians, occupational therapists, physiotherapists and others. The support worker promotes and maintains physical, psychological, and social well-being.
Graduates may seek employment with home care services, elders’ homes, group homes, daycares working as an aide with special needs children, long term care units or under the supervision of the health centre staff providing support to the community.
