    traveling caregiver

    Besides a spouse or parent has anyone heard of a traveling pca service?
    So like if you traveled out of the country for a week you could hire someone for b&b program as well as bathing and dressing?

    good question--

    I looked around a little and found a couple of interesting things.

    This link goes to a site that organizes travel for DA folk, and it seems that PCA's travel at 70% rate, at least on some of the trips. Seems like a good outfit; might want to put your post into the sports and travel forum and ask if anybody has used them . . .

    Maybe you could contact these people and ask if they could recommend someone who has worked with their clients before, or if they know of an organization like what you're looking for.

    Good luck! Where do you want to go?

    Can't say that I blame you, or your wife . . . I have some friends who spent a lot of time in Turkey years ago, and loved it. Did you have any luck with the DA travel people?
