Program description - October 2022

In partnership with home and community healthcare employers, the supportive care program prepares learners to assist individuals needing support to live independently in their home or community. Emphasis is placed on developing the knowledge, skills, and competencies to deliver quality, safe, and ethical assistance to those in need. Learners will develop a clear understanding of their role as a member of the health-care team and how they can add real value to the health-care system and positively influence the lives of others. They will learn how to communicate effectively with clients and engage in activities that support the needs and preferences of people for whom they care and their families. Theoretical foundations and practical applications of supportive care are integrated throughout the program, positioning graduates to work with stable persons requiring some predictable levels of assistance should they reside in their own home, assisted living, or retirement living settings.
