Personal Support Worker (PSW) program will provide the necessary skills required for the personal care of individuals needing temporary or permanent assistance with their daily needs.

PSWs must develop a broad range of abilities. They must provide not only for the comfort, safety and well-being of their clients, but also demonstrate compassion and respect for those in their care.

The Personal Support Worker program prepares students to work with the frail and elderly as well as individuals with physical disabilities. 

This program replaces previous programs for health care aides, home support workers, and attendant/respite workers. It was developed as part of the Ontario government’s plan to reform long-term care and support services.
