SE Health is hiring Casual Personal Support Workers (PSWs) - Journey Home Hospice
Toronto shelters are often unable to provide planned palliative care deaths in their facilities and homeless individuals are likely to lack the family and social support networks that assist in providing care in the community. As a result, these individuals are dying on the street and in hospitals. Through the partnership with Hospice Toronto we have opened a 10-bed hospice to support the needs of the homeless population in Toronto.
