Background
Grandview Lodge has partnered with Niagara College to offer an 8 month Personal Support Worker (PSW) program at its 657 Lock St. West location (Dunnville). The program, now in its second year, is delivered by Niagara College instructors in Grandview’s auditorium 2 days each week.

Completion of this program will provide students with a College Certificate as a PSW and 2 additional certificates (Gentle Persuasive Approach (GPA) and TrainCan Food Safety) that enhance their marketability and ability to provide quality care. Offering the program locally at Grandview Lodge eliminates extensive travel for Haldimand County students, and provides 220 hours of clinical placement within our community.
