Brief Program Description

The Live in Caregiver program is a training program that
prepares students to work for Canadian families or organizations providing
caregiving and support worker services for children and/or adults. Students
will gain essential skills, including knowledge of Canadian Culture,
interpersonal communication skills, guiding children and adults’ behaviour,
and other health and safety related skills required to be a live-in caregiver or
support worker.

Career Occupation

Home support workers provide personal care and companionship for
seniors, persons with disabilities and convalescent clients. Care is provided
within the client’s residence, in which the home support worker may also
reside. They are employed by home care and support agencies, private
households, or they may be self-employed. Housekeepers perform
housekeeping and other home management duties in private households
and other non-institutional, residential settings.
