You could try applying for positions (jobs) with some of the home care agencies in your area. Check out the programs and services directory with your local area agency on aging. Area Agency on Aging for Southwest Florida http://www.aaaswfl.org/

I would approach an agency or a residential/nursing home. In the UK nursing homes and agencies will sometimes take you on without any experience as long as you pass the CRB check. They will then give you basic training where you will `shadow` someone and then start training you towards NVQ`s whilst in the job.

Do you have any experience? Start calling the different agencies in the phone book. Print up a lot of resumes and mail them out. You never know who might be looking for help. I worked for Home Instead for 6 years and I enjoyed it. Now I am working in an assisted living home for 3 years.
