DISASTER PERSONAL CARE ASSISTANTS are state volunteers, who support the sick, injured, mentally or physically disabled, or the elderly and fragile in a shelter setting during a disaster. When people arrive at a locally run, Red Cross or State of Maine sponsored shelter for displaced disaster survivors often there is a need for personal care assistants to help with daily activities, such as bathing and bathroom functions, feeding, grooming, taking medication, etc.
Just-In-Time training is available for those interested who are inexperienced.
