Ontarians depend on the support our Personal Support Workers (PSWs) provide every day. We want everyone to understand the skilled care, love and compassion they provide.
This job isn't for everyone; it takes a special kind of person to do their job. They are our Heroes of Homecare. Our healthcare system couldn’t operate without them. That's why we're asking those who receive care from a PSW and your families to tell us how your PSW helps you retain your independence in your own home and why this is important to you.
It's easy - just visit our website and tell us your homecare story in your own words. #RiseForHomecare
Heroes of Homecare
I became a PSW to help seniors stay in their home as long as they could. To give dignity and kindness and love. So many seniors fall through the cracks because they have no one to help, or family, or they are too proud to ask. I try to make their day good and happy, and make them feel good about themselves.
Giselle Ralph, PSW
I love helping people who can’t help themselves. To be able to earn the trust of your clients even when everything around them seems to be disappearing such as their spouse, health or independence is a great gift.
Darla Fiset, PSW
