Hiring Personal Support Workers: First Steps

Presented by Judith McGill

Having some form of Individualized Funding (including SSAH and PASSPORTS) can be extremely helpful in building a meaningful life for yourself or family member. Personal Support Workers are critical to making many of the “good things” happen in people’s lives. Before starting the interview process with potential Personal Support Workers, it is important to consider not only what is needed in a Personal Support Worker, but also what role he or she will play.

This one-day reflective workshop delves into what you need to do prior to interviewing. Topics covered will include:

  • Laying a strong foundation before hiring
  • Finding the right match
  • Clarifying a Personal Support Worker’s role
  • What qualities you are looking for in a Personal Support Worker
  • Evaluating your recruitment and retention strategies

Judith has had extensive experience in helping people and their families hire and retain Personal Support Workers over the past 20 years. She has written a book aimed at families that will be published in 2019 entitled “Taking charge of Hiring Personal Support Workers”
