York Region celebrates Personal Support Worker Day

Chairment Statement Picture

"On behalf of York Regional Council and The Regional Municipality of York, it is my pleasure to recognize Tuesday, May 19, 2020 as Personal Support Worker Day.

The dedication of Personal Support Worker Day is an opportunity to recognize the essential role personal support workers play in our health care system, providing high-quality community and home-based care.

Whether in long-term care, hospitals, community care living or home care settings, the compassionate care provided by Personal Support Workers supports some of our most vulnerable residents.

In response to the COVID-19 global pandemic, York Region’s personal support workers are demonstrating their dedication and commitment to delivering this essential service. In a time when many have been asked to stay home, they are on the front lines, putting themselves at risk in order to provide support and care to those most in need.

I extend our deepest appreciation to all York Region Personal Support Workers and thank them for providing compassionate community care, helping to ensure York Region remains a strong, caring and safe community."
