Hi all.

I have been trying to work this out but as yet have found nothing on the net and wondering if someone has any info on it.

I have been working as a PCA for 9 years, (i am 29) the last 4 years i have been with an agency in the community area of work.

If i get accepted into my Div2 course next year i will want to go back to shiftwork in a facility (it's an ageing in place one so there are different types of care in the one building)

I was wondering what the pay is like in facilities now? And also, i noticed that there are 4 grades of personal care worker. How do i know which one of those grades i fit into? Does it go by years working or experience etc.. as i am aware the pay rates are different for each grade.

I have been to numerous sites on the net but can't really figure it out.

Any help?

Kate.
