We found a lovely caregiver for mom on ElderCare.com. It has made my life less hectic, and I worry much less since I know she's well taken care of on a daily basis. Wendy L, Chicago
The Role of a Personal Support Worker
A personal support worker refers to an unregulated health professional who provides long or short term care. Personal support workers usually act as companions and assist people with their daily life including activities such as bathing, eating, cleaning and preparing meals. To put it simply, a personal support worker will try their best to do for a person the things that the person would do for themselves, if he/she were physically and/or cognitively able.
