Learn more about the role of support workers

Our goal at Ascend Health Group is to help our members wherever possible to transition to a life of independence and community participation. This means that the work that support workers can do varies greatly because of the many different abilities and life situations of our members.

You might help with the everyday tasks around the home like cleaning, gardening, showering, toileting, cooking, or help with your daily living activities like dressing, grooming and eating. You might also help members with activities that allow a person to participate effectively in their environments, including meal preparation, transport to events or appointments, or helping with employment and volunteer activities for example.
