How To Be a Paid Family Caregiver

Learn how to care for yourself while caring for your loved ones

Paid Care Assistant for Family Members

A paid caregiver, also known as a personal care assistant or PCA, is someone who performs individualized, one-on-one healthcare and daily task assistance for someone who is elderly, chronically sick, or disabled. What most people don’t know is that the process for becoming a qualified PCA is quite simple and anybody over 18 can sign up. That means, that if you have a family member, especially one who lives with you, who could benefit from having a personal caregiver, then you can be the one to provide care and get paid for it.


The Best Care Comes From A Loved One

You know your family better than anyone and are likely taking care of them and helping them around the house regardless. At A Better Life In Home Care, it’s our mission to inform everyone that you can be a paid caregiver for a family member — and a good one at that. When you work as a family caregiver through us, you get all of the tools, resources, and knowledge to succeed in your caregiving career.

Qualifying as a PCA

In order to become a qualified caregiver, there’s no need for medical school or even becoming a Certified Nursing Assistant. Instead, you’ll go through a short, yet informative, course regarding everything you need to know about basic and essential healthcare. Then, you’ll take a test on the material you learned and if you pass, you’ll receive a certification as a Personal Care Assistant. While the qualification process is quite quick and simple, A Better Life In Home Care will be with you every step of the way. Reach out to us to start your application today.
