There are always personal care positions available in Hawaii – especially on Oahu, and some on Maui that I remember. I think it’s a great way to stay in Hawaii – because often times you get room and board, or at least room along with a thousand or so bucks a month.
When I was 25 I took a job as a personal care aide at a seniors care home in Pennsylvania. One of the most amazing jobs I’ve ever had. Not for the fun of cleaning up colostomy bags and such, but all the experiences combined – amazing. Gave me a greater world-view. Many of these people were on the verge of death. Some died during my few months there.
Take a position as a care aide in Hawaii as a job and you’ll stretch the boundaries of who you are as a person. You can’t come away from something like that without changing inside. Good changes.
