CNAs are in great demand all over the country, including Aroostook County. If you are a caring person who truly enjoys helping other people, you will not find a more rewarding career. It is hard work, but the effort you spend in helping others is returned to you many times with the satisfaction you bring home every day. You make a difference in other peoples' lives. For more information concerning CNA job duties, call the Director of Nursing at Caribou Rehab and Nursing Center (207 498-3102). Caribou and Presque Isle Rehab and Nursing Centers will pay the cost of your CNA training in exchange for a one year work commitment (minimum of 1,000 hours must be worked, which is an average of 20 hours per week)
First: Contact Caribou Adult Education at 308 Sweden Street, Caribou or at (207) 493-4266 for a CNA course application. You must pass a test and be interviewed by the instructor before you are accepted into the CNA course.

"We are very appreciative of the loving support each and everyone of you provided our mother. She loved you all and just sparkled when you smiled or gave her a hug. There were so many of those acts of kindness, caring, love and respect she experienced during her days... We are very grateful to you and very touched by our experience at the Caribou Nursing Home. You are an outstanding staff - No one knew that better than Velma and our family. Thank you."
