In just one year, you can develop the skills you need to begin a satisfying career helping in a long-term care facility, supportive housing, home care, adult daycare and palliative care. A full 100% of our graduates find employment, and employers are 100% satisfied with the personal support workers they hire from Sheridan.

What You’ll Learn

  • Assist clients with activities of daily living, including meal prep, feeding and personal care.
  • Understand and empathize with clients and their challenging situations.
  • Lift and transfer clients.
  • Increase your clients’ comfort, safety and mobility.
  • Communicate clearly and compassionately with clients and report accurately.

Your training will include 350 hours (four full weeks) in two practicum settings, including a long-term care facility and your choice of community setting. Sheridan arranges your placements for you, and a faculty member supervises your Long Term Care placement. Field experiences often lead directly to employment after graduation.

All professors teaching in the Personal Support Worker program hold a bachelor’s or master’s degree in nursing, and all are heavily engaged in the personal care field. They bring their own experience working in elder care to the classroom.

There's a weird narrative out there about Sheridan only caring about international students. I'm a domestic student and I finished my advanced diploma in marketing last year, which included the search marketing course. My profs were industry professionals who were extremely helpful and approachable. Most of them knew me by my first name.

I'm working at an agency in downtown Toronto right now and loving every second of it. I highly recommend the school and the program.
