What is Personal Support?
Personal Support helps provide assistance with daily personal care needs as individuals deal with the effects of aging, injury or illness. Managing everyday tasks can be challenging for people who are faced with health related issues, but having additional support and care can be an affordable solution that enables individuals to stay at home safely and comfortably.
Who can benefit from Personal Support?
If you need assistance maintaining daily activities and would like to remain in the comfort of your own home, a Personal Support Worker (PSW) might be the right choice for you. Whether you need short-term or long-term care, our PSWs are available to help with all of your home care needs. We’ve developed a comprehensive PSW Brochure to help you determine if our care givers are right for you.

Our Personal Support Workers
Whether it’s occasional light housekeeping or long term care cases, our Personal Support Workers are available 24/7 for all your home care needs. In order to assist you in getting the proper care, one of our care coordinators will visit your home and perform a detailed care assessment together with you and your loved ones. Following that, a care plan is created that fits your specific needs.
We service both rural and urban regions throughout Ontario and Nova Scotia, with 14 Clinics and 11 Home Care office locations.
