What is the difference between a Certified Personal Care Aide and a Certified Nurse Assistant/Aide? Are they alike or different? What does each job requirements? Do they both give medication and shots/IVs?
Thanks for the help
I've been working in a nursing home for $9/hour but I think I might be able to get more (or maybe I should charge less) for doing in home care for the elderly. I am a CNA in a nursing home at the moment and someone was interested in hiring me to take care of their grandfather in their home on the weekends. Should I charge by the hour, by the day, or how much? I have a year of experience working in a nursing home as a nursing assistant and personal care aide.
I'm looking at different jobs/careers and being a personal and home care aide appeals to me. However, I know that education/training requirements for the job varies in each state. Can anyone tell me Arizona's?
Recently I had to quit my job due to loss of transportation. I worked for a company in Pennsylvania as a personal care aide...my job was travel to consumer to consumers homes to provide care. Now my whole time I was employed I traveled between 10-20 miles a day and sometimes twice a day to the same consumer...well I had asked several times if there were any closer consumers to my home and was always told no that's all they had for me and if they were to sign on any new consumers I would be made aware.....well after my car broke down I had no other options of getting to my scheduled consumers of 10 and 20 miles away everyday I had to quit. I know that I am able to get unemployment as long as my reason for seperation from employer is the same as my employer says....I am finaciablly able for it...got a letter stating it was pending depending on what employer says....now I finally got a letter after 6 weeks....now my ex employer is trying to tell unemployment that they DID have work within walking distance of my home...which is kind of funny because they never had it when I asked nearly every week...and now they are saying that they actually left me a voicemail saying they had closer work...when I never ever got a voicemail from them...I had to answer a questionaire responding to these things...I explained that I am able and available for work despite my loss of transportation because I will apply and accept any suitable work within walking distance of my home & will apply and accept suitable work where public transportation is available and I will be trying to fix my car or purchasing a new one and have been actively applying and searching for jobs since my seperation...I even had one interview I'm waiting to hear back from....I explained I never received a voicemail from my ex employer...and I explained how during my entire employment I was told there was no closer work.....now I have to wait for a decison based on that information...just curious if anyone has any insight on this or knows much about unemployment and what they may decide... I could really use the money while finding a new job...however I'm not about to get a lawyer for little amount of benefits.
In the Pennsylvania unemployment handbook it says with Loss of transportation you can be eligible if there was no work within walking distance and no public transportation available which there was neither. Also finding work within walking distance is not unrealisic because I live around all kinds of stores and businesses. There is also a bus route up every street in my town :) it just so happened that the job I had I was always traveling up to 20 miles or more in directions where there were no bus routes. Unemployment sent me a letter stating a decision will be made after I answer questions. My ex employer said they sent me a voicemail when they didn't my question is what does anyone think based on experience with unemployment what they will decide about my employer saying they left a voicemail when they did not..
Here is information from the Pennsylvania Unemployment Handbook...for those of you answering without any any insight on this matter..
Transportation problems - To be eligible, the claimant must show that the loss of the transportation was through no fault of his/her own and rendered his/her problem virtually insurmountable. He/she must attempt to secure alternate transportation prior to quitting. The claimant must also be able and available for suitable work in the local labor market consistent with his/her limitations.
On my application for unemployment I explained that my car breaking down was beyond my control and the repairs at the time were too much to afford... I explained I checked for any possible bus routes and found none to where the consumers lived... I explained that I tried to find other ways to get to work and found none...and I am able and available for suitable work in the local labor market.
Now I'm waiting to see what unemployment decides based on my employers response and mine...if anyone has some actual experience with this matter I would appreciate your opinion...thanks!
The worker I talked to on the phone said my reasons are reasonable enough to make me eligible...due to the fact the repairs for the car were more than the car was worth and that I tried to find other ways to work such as searched bus routes..checked with family members...so I tried to secure transportation first...and basically I've already been told I should qualify for unemployment as long as my reasons agree with what my employer said. So now it comes down to what actually happened and what they are saying.
Thank you very much Michr. That was very helpful. I did not have attendance problems untill my car broke down. I never refused any close work...in fact if I had known there was close work.. I would have walked to work or took a bus...I asked for closer work throughout my entire employment...they can't prove that wasn't the reason I quit because I was always at work up untill this happened. I will appeal it if I am denied because I have nothing to lose, thanks again.
What is the difference between a personal aide and personal care worker? Is there one?
Or is it the same job with a different title?
So I am about to graduate high school and I want to go to college for a degree in human services, which I feel would give me a pretty broad range of career options since I'm not 100?ositive yet. But my top choices I have been considering are childcare worker, substance abuse/addiction counselor, or a personal care aide. I am pretty positive all of these career choices could fall under the human services category, but I'm not sure? Could anyone tell me for sure? Thanks :)
