Personal support workers are employed in hospitals, long-term care facilities, retirement homes and community agencies providing support in the client’s home. They work under the direction of both the client and regulated health care professionals such as registered nurses, registered practical nurses and physiotherapists.

This program is designed to provide students with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to provide personal care and home management services to clients in both community and institutional settings.
