My husband has been diagnosed with MDS and eventually hopes to have a bone marrow transplant. During the time that his bone marrow will be re-establishing itself he will be at home for the most part and I will be his caretaker. This is a job I do not fear but know that I will need help to be most able to undertake it. I need to employ someone who can spell me in Portland Oregon and would love suggestions as to where to look. Thank you

hi, I am a CNA but I usually do private jobs. my last job lasted 3 years. I have experience in a wide variety of disabilities and populations. I am interested in finding another job in a different area. I have been searching the web and cant seem to find anything. If anyone has any ideas or knows of a private job, I would love to talk to you. Also interested in temp agencies that hire CNAs and send them to different areas to work, I have a niece that did that and ended up in Alaska, she had a wonderful experience. Thanks in advance.

has anyone taken the caregiver certification training a 10 hour online course through the Professional Association of Caregivers (P.A.C.) from the website caregiver list? it's $59 and i'm wondering if it's worth it and really needed, do companies like to see this on a resume?

My husband is in a long-term acute center on a ventilator. I spend 12 to 14 hours here at his bedside and my children take turns staying through the nights. he can't speak due to the Trach and we feel better knowing he will recognize one of us if he wakes. I am looking for someone (doesn't need to be a nurse) to sit some nights with him. I can't afford more than possibly $40 or so a night and it wouldn't be every night. any ideas how I go about finding candidates?
