Intro: Your Homecare Worker Feedback

By David W. Oaks, Eugene, Oregon

I am in a power chair after a fall in 2012 broke my neck, and I became a "quad." I utilize a great team of about 6 homecare workers for about 85 hours per week, here in our home with my wonderful wife Debra in southwest Eugene.

This is a brief, private, free survey for homecare workers in Eugene.

First, this survey helps me to keep track of homecare workers interested in joining our team, either as a regular worker or sub.

Second, this survey helps build the community of homecare workers in Eugene.

Even though all of the info here will be kept private, if you indicate in the survey, I can share data with other disabled people in Eugene looking for homecare workers.

WHEN YOU FILL OUT THE SURVEY, BE SURE TO ANSWER THE FIRST QUESTION: LIST YOUR NAME AND CONTACT INFO! OTHERWISE, SINCE THIS SURVEY IS ANONYMOUS, I HAVE NO WAY TO GET BACK TO YOU! THANKS.

For more info about my self and my job needs, please see my blog and click on the "Help Wanted" tab:
