    Career Opportunities

    Excellent job opportunities are expected for this occupation, as rapid employment growth and high replacement needs produce a large number of job openings. The number of elderly people, an age group characterized by worsening health problems and requiring some assistance, is projected to rise substantially. In addition to the elderly, patients in other age groups will increasingly rely on home care, a trend that reflects several developments, including efforts to contain costs by moving patients out of hospitals and nursing care facilities as quickly as possible, the realization that treatment can be more effective in familiar rather than sterile surroundings, and the development and improvement of medical technologies for in-home treatment.

    Personal Support Workers usually work for private and not-for profit home care agencies. Some are self-employed. Personal support workers may also work for senior citizens’ homes, nursing homes or hospitals. They also provide care in the client’s home. Note: Some career and education options may require advanced degrees, further training or experience.
