Are you a PSW?

    Home Care Workers’ Co-operative Pre-Screening Questionnaire

    Home Care Workers’ Co-operative is a not-for-profit business, owned and operated by PSWs to provide high quality home care services. We work hard to ensure that we empower our worker-owners by giving them a real voice in their work environment. Our PSWs have personally invested in the co-op, and therefore have a vested interest in its success. By taking care of our PSW members, our co-op raises the standard of care given for our clients.
