Not long ago, we announced that we would be producing a comprehensive guide on how to become a paid caregiver in the United States. We’re pleased to announce that the guide is now completed and you can find the download link at the end of this post.
This is the second such guide that Kapok has produced, with the first being our Guide to Affordable Housing for Seniors. While the guides to involve a significant amount of work to produce, they are entirely free. However, we do ask that you send people back to this site to read it, rather than distributing the PDF document.
The topic of becoming a paid caregiver has become a particularly relevant one in modern society, as we are living with an aging population.
At the same time, many individuals and family members simply do not have the tools or resources to effectively care for their aging parents or other aging relatives. As a result, many people turn to paid caregivers as an alternative.
There is a large number of different job titles in this field, including home health aide, personal care aide and certified nursing assistant. The range of jobs alone can make the field seem incredibly confusing and overwhelming.
This confusion was a key reason for developing this guide.
As such, the guide offers detailed insight into how you can be successful as a paid caregiver and the steps involved in breaking into this field.
You can download the PDF of the full guide here or read more about what it contains on our original announcement page. You can also use our contact form to get in touch if you have any questions about what the guide offers.
If you did enjoy the guide, then we encourage you to click on the various ad links across the site, particularly the Amazon links that can be found in posts like: 5 Important Tips for Traveling with the Elderly. These ads provide a little revenue to help ensure that we are able to keep the side live and to develop additional resources like this guide.
