    Care when Traveling?

    I live in NY. I wanted to travel for a 9 day trip in May to Indiana. Anyone know if there is a network that provides nursing care? I mainly need help w/ my BP.

    Thanks!

    Your best bet it to take your PCA with you. While you can certainly private pay through an agency to get bowel care done in a different area, you will usually have to pay for an RN or LVN (in many states aides from agencies are not allowed to do bowel care), which may require a minimum shift (often at least 4 hours each visit), and they may still not know how to do your bowel program, requiring you to teach each person who is assigned to your case. Some agencies will still require a physician's order (from a physician licensed in their state) for care like this. If is often less expensive to have a family member, friend or PCA accompany you and pay them a wage as well as pay for their lodging and travel expenses.
