Personal Care Aide – Caregiver Job in Honolulu

Navigation:/, oahu/Personal Care Aide – Caregiver Job in Honolulu

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.

    About the Author:

    I’ve lived Hawaii since the mid ‘80s when I moved here at the age of 21. I arrived site-unseen in Honolulu with zero contacts and about $5k in savings. I worked from nearly zero and today Hawaii has given me the greatest gifts in the world in all aspects: spiritually, financially, romantically (married since early ‘90s w/ 2 children), and most important, peace. My goal with this site is to share the magic of this Land of Aloha and help others who are on a similar quest.

      I am a Canadian gal that would like to be a care giver for any of the snow birds that are on any of the Hawaiian islands for the winter months. Given that I am a Canadian, it would have to be a Canadian that is paying me in Canadian funds, as I don’t believe that I could work in the US unless I was sponsored. And, I can only stay in the US for a maximum of 6 months.
      I do have experience working with seniors and if you contact me, we can discuss it.
