Hiring a PSW

Hiring a personal support worker for your camper is a relationship between the family and the personal support worker.  While we may help you find a PSW, the terms of employment are up to you.  We highly recommend that families check references (if they are a past employee of Easter Seals Camps, please feel free to get in touch with us to act as a reference).  We also recommend that you interview the candidate to ensure that they are suitable to work with your camper.

If you are hiring a personal support worker who has never been to camp before, we recommend the candidate is given the PSW Handbook and the link to the PSW section of this website.  Allow them an opportunity to review the information to get a good sense of what our program is about.  Being a PSW can be a very demanding job, and the better informed the candidate is, the more successful they will be.
