Personal Support Worker
Careers in the healthcare industry are rewarding and always in
demand. The Personal Support Worker program will teach students the
skills and traits they need to excel as a personal support worker in a
private home or residential care facility.
Students will learn to meet the needs of patients in order to improve
their quality of day-to-day living. They will learn about promoting
emotional, physical and mental well-being, as well as working with other
members of the health care team.
Students will also learn to identify and respond to the physical and
emotional needs of clients/residents. Basic skills acquired include
promoting physical and mental activation, observing and communicating
with the client, handling specialized equipment, and providing personal
and physical care.
