Seeking a part-time Health Care Aide with computer skills. Any advice?

I have recently become ill and am attempting to navigate basic life services to put in place for the foreseeable future. Unfortunately I need to do this on my own volition. I am presently seeking a part-time health care provider in Broward County Florida that is also computer literate. None of the home health care agencies that I have contacted by phone can locate a home health care provider that has the ability to act as an aide in addition to helping me organize my past and present medical, business and personal files. In addition to utilizing a computer to research HHA , grocery stores that deliver food, research doctors, skilled nursing facilities pharmacies, transportation services etc. My primary physician and specialists have no suggestions that I have reached out to. Do you have any suggestions of where I might locate or search for an individual with these additional computer skills? I have never been computer literate and my illness prevents me from utilizing or learning to type or research on a computer. I also suffer from emphysema and chronic laryngitis and I am unable to to type utilizing a dictation devise on an IPhone. I do not have family and or an individual to help me with either caregiving or to perform many of the basic functions of life. The SSA granted my application for SSDI Medicare for the disabled under the age of 65. However I was advised by the SSA that I will never be eligible for Medicaid. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Torts.

It would be ideal, wouldn't it Catherine, if you can find someone to be an aide and also a computer assistant? But you may have to consider two people. Get a personal care attendant through an agency, and also a computer administrator for you. It is possible the computer person could be a student. You do want someone with enough maturity to understand what has to be pulled together as well as how to enter it into a program. Try the career placement office of a community college. That part of the job might also appeal to someone who is retired. (Hey, I'd apply for that job!) Check with Senior Centers. Put notices on public bulletin boards. Put a small ad in a local paper.

Best wishes to you. Let us know your progress!

About Medicaid: maybe there is a particular Medicaid program that has caps of earning for previous years. Regular Medicaid does not. SSA does NOT administer Medicaid and has no say in who qualifies.

Thank you very much for your advice. I was advised by the Social Security Administration that my last 10 years of earnings were over the
amount of monies to qualify for Medicaid. Pursuant to your advise I will start over with the SSA to determine if I can qualify for Medicare and Medicaid.
Thanks again and God Bless.

When u say SSA do u mean Social Security Agency? Never heard of SS telling you u can't get Medicaid. Two different things. My nephew gets SS disability, Medicare and Medicaid. Even people on SSI get Medicaid.

To your question...call your County Office of Aging and see if they have volunteers. Call your high school and see if there is a student group that requires community service for the students to belong. Maybe one of the students would be glad to help. Ask ur O of A about an aide. Have Medicaid come in and evaluate you for an aide. While talking to them ask about being told you can get medicaid. If on Medicare, Medicaid will become a supplemental.
