Pediatric Home Care Agency Denver

  1. 0 I am an underemployed teacher currently working as a teacher's aide, and also as a geriatric CNA. I have quite a bit of experience as a geriatric CNA, and elderly residents can be so interesting in their own way, but I would like to utilize my experience in both areas to work with the pediatric population that has severe physical and cognitive disabilities.

    I have applied with Children's Hospital, and haven't had much luck (they require hospital experience). Is anyone aware of a home health agency in Denver that would serve a younger population? Would a nursing agency serving kiddos even need CNA's? From my experience in schools, many of these kiddos need various feeding tubes and other more advanced care, which I obviously can't do as a CNA.

    Try Pediatric Services of America Pediatric Home Healthcare | PSA Healthcare. You can also try Professional Pediatric Homecare I don't know if they hire CNAs, however it might be worth a try.

    Also try Visiting Nurses. I don't know how often they have kids, but it would get you in the door for home health experience. The website is Visiting Nurse Association of Colorado > Home.

    Also you might want to try Denver Hospice Denver Hospice and Porter Hospice A Leading Denver Hospital | Porter Adventist Hospital (which has the Butterfly Program-a hospice program specifically for children.)

    Those are the major programs around that I know of. There are, of course, many, many others. It will just take some leg work and willingness on your part.

    Good Luck.

    The Denver Hospice does see pediatric children, and we have for the ten years that I have worked there. We are always looking for staff that has peds experience.

    PSA doesn't hire CNA's.
