Grad Testimonial

My name is Emanuele and I work as a Social Worker aid in Italy helping clients with mental illness carry out activities of daily living. I decided to enroll in the Personal Support Worker program at Evergreen College in order to gain further knowledge and experience in the health care field geared towards the care and support of people that are in need of assistance with everyday life tasks. For a person who loves helping others, whether young or old, I've found the Personal Support Worker program to be very rewarding in the sense that it has taught me the necessary skills required for the proper care of those in need of assistance due to a physical or mental disability. I had the opportunity to volunteer at various Long-term care facilities in the GTA and my Italian background and knowledge of the language became a great asset as the majority of the residents were of Italian descent. As the aging population in Canada increases, the demand for Personal Support Workers is also increasing, for this reason, I highly recommend the PSW program at Evergreen College to whoever wishes to start or continue their education in this field.
