Personal Support Workers (PSW) Day
May 19, 2016
In 2010, the Government of Ontario declared May 19 PSW Day. PSW Day salutes the hard work and dedication of Ontario’s personal support workers (PSWs) and health aides.
PSWs care for the elderly, injured and disabled in community care, long-term care and hospital facilities. These highly-skilled caregivers are able to handle a wide range of medical issues in the patient’s home and play an integral role in Canada’s healthcare system.
Join us in celebrating the difference PSWs make in their patients’ lives every day.
To find out more, there are many associations representing PSWs across the country:
- SEIU Healthcare
- Personal Support Workers Association
- Personal Support Worker Canada
- Personal Support Network of Ontario
