Beacon Community Services

Home Support is one of the fastest growing sectors in Canadian health care. Over the next several years, as the Baby Boom generation begins to retire, the need for adequate home support will continue to mushroom. This evolution in our society promises a bright employment picture for the home support sector. These changes are beginning now. Our clients’ #1 concern is this: when they call us for service, will we be there to provide it for them, when and how they need it? We need qualified and reliable Community Health Workers, who are caring, patient and supportive to meet these needs today and in the future.
