Proud to be a PSW: Celebrating PSW Day 2020

We asked our PSWs to share with us what makes them proud to work as Personal Support Workers. Their answers are inspiring and showcase the type of person that it takes to be a PSW. Thank you to all the Personal Support Workers in Ontario, and especially to our Circle of Care PSWs who care for our clients like their own family.
