JOB TITLE: Personal Support Worker
LOCATION: Durham Region
WHO WE ARE:
Oakwood Home Healthcare provides personalized support services to people in their homes, helping them maintain their independence and develop new interpersonal relationships.
The founding of Oakwood Home Healthcare was inspired by the owner’s firsthand experiences with the healthcare communities that have supported her mother for almost two decades. As a PSW for more than 5 years herself, Lindsay has experienced both the employee and the client end of the healthcare world.
Because of this unique insight, we care about both sides of the working relationship.
