Personal Support Workers


Osteoporosis Canada, Ontario Osteoporosis Strategy and GERAS Centre for Aging Research are excited to announce the launch of four series of videos, aimed at educating health care professionals to prevent falls and fractures for long term care (LTC) residents.

This 4-part series is for personal support workers who work in long term care. It demonstrates how to help residents transfer in and out of bed safely, sit properly in wheelchairs, and how to do sit to stands with residents to keep their legs strong.
