September openings at Carleton University and Algonquin College for Students with Disabilities who wish to live on campus
The Attendant Services Program operating at Carleton University and Algonquin College in Ottawa is pleased to announce that there will be spaces available this September for college and university students with disabilities that would like to live on campus and have personal care services available 24 hours per day.
Students with varying levels of disability are able to live and study on campus with the assistance of certified personal support workers and trained student attendants who will assist them with activities of daily living such as rising and retiring, toileting, personal hygiene, and dressing.
Attendants are available by calling the program cellular phone and provide assistance, in most instances, within ten minutes of receiving the call. Morning routines are scheduled and coordinated with class schedules to ensure that students with disabilities can get to class on time. All other services do not need to be scheduled, giving students as much flexibility as possible.
