GREAT FALLS — As part of our initiative called "The Rebound: Montana," MTN News wants to help people get back on their feet as America gets ready to head to work.
If you're considering a new vocation, A Plus Health Care in Great Falls is asking you to consider a career that helps others. The agency has offices around the state and specializes in helping clients of all ages and abilities live independently.
They're looking for personal care attendants (PCAs) and certified nursing assistants (CNAs) as they prepare for COVID-19 restrictions to be gradually rescinded over the next several weeks or months.
Branch manager Audrey Finlayson says one thing she's heard from both workers and clients is how much they miss seeing each other since the COVID-19 restrictions took effect. “For some of them it’s been very hard,” she said. “Because maybe the client has had to isolate themselves because they’re so suspectable and they don’t want anyone from the outside coming in or they need to stay with family to provide extra support or family is living with them so they’re not getting to see their normal caregiver.”
Finlayson says the profession is perfect for people looking to get a start in health care, retirees, or anyone with a passion for helping others. “Whether you’re family caregiver or you do it for a job- you get the rewards back that you’re paying to that person and there’s nothing like it,” she said.
A Plus Health Care is hiring PCAs and CNAs statewide and has free training resources online (see below) for this job or for those who simply want to help take care of a family member.
