Home Support Worker Program

This course provides an opportunity for individuals to be instructed at a basic entry level for a Home Support Worker. Students will be taught to provide or assist with routine of daily living for clients who do not have nursing needs.


These successful graduates will be able to manage an individual’s home needs: i.e. housekeeping, food preparation, dressing and grooming, taking clients for outings or appointments, or providing respite for the family. These skills can be used with clients of all ages.


Clients in need of this type of support will not require nursing support. Successful graduates may be hired by the private home care sector or community care facilities, not Provincial Home Care or long term care facilities.

  • A Level II Police Records Check including a Vulnerable Persons Check
