More Personal Support Worker Hours to Help Seniors
The Ontario Government has announced that they are adding three million more personal support worker (PSW) hours to ensure more seniors can receive the care they need in their own homes.
PSWs assist people with personal hygiene, light housework and help with delegated health procedures such as changing dressings. Having the support of PSWs enables seniors, people with physical disabilities and those with complex needs to live independently at home — rather than in a hospital or long-term care home.
The announcement comes in time for Personal Support Worker Day on May 16.
