Personal Support Worker Day
PSW Day is held every year on May 19. PSWs are the backbone of the health system and approximately 35% of all PSWs in Ontario work in the home and community sector, delivering a range of vital services that reduce the need for more expensive hospital care, emergency room visits, or long-term care. They benefit individual clients, their caregivers, and the health care system as a whole.
OCSA's not-for-profit members employ thousands of PSWs across the province and we thank them for the amazing work they do supporting Ontarians every day.
