The Personal Support Worker program prepares graduates with the knowledge and skills to provide compassionate, safe and supportive care to individuals across their lifespan including clients experiencing cognitive impairment, physical disability, age and mental health challenges. Students will develop assessment and communications skills in order to identify and document pertinent information about their client’s health status. Students will learn to provide client-centred and client-directed care based on ethical principles, sensitive to diverse client and family values, beliefs and needs, and follow the direction of the care plan.
