Personal Support Workers provide more than 70% of care for patients in long-term care facilities. Because patients in long-term care are often too sick or frail to return home, they will almost always face the end of their lives while in care. Personal Support Workers must make this experience as comfortable as possible and Kath Murray knows exactly how to do just that.
Part of CDI College’s on-going Education Series, the presentations by Kath Murray will provide students, grads and the general public with a new look at the career path they’re interested in.
