Do You Have a Current Oregon Senior and Disability Services Provider Number? Or would you like to have one? 


Here in southwest Eugene, on a quarter-acre of wild garden, in our little creative home, I have a great team of about seven fantastic folks. They provide about 85 hours per week to help me get out of bed, do hygiene, eat, get back to bed and various activities of independent living that allow me to live in our community with my amazing wife, Debra.

As a quadriplegic, I use a powerchair, and have a few other challenges such as a disabled voice. After more than 40 years as an activist, I am passionate about social & environmental change.

A priority is a homecare worker with an active Senior & Disabled Services (S&DS) provider number. S&DS pays my workers’ wages, health insurance and vacation through the State of Oregon.

Experience with paralysis care, such as a hoyer lift, is helpful. We aim to make this the best employment experience on Earth!

If interested email me at:

For background please see my blog entry about Homecare positions here.

I also have a blog entry about why someone might want to join my splendid crew, and how we aim to make this one of the best homecare jobs in the world. I have made a Top Ten List here.

Are You Interested But Do Not Have An S&DS Number Yet?

If homecare is something that you have always dreamed of doing, please tell me why because I may be able to help start you in this great career. In fact, often the only way to get such a provider number is through a disabled person, who must approve and interview a candidate first for Senior and Disability Services.

S&DS will give successful prospects a free orientation, criminal background check, and then a provider number. Once a person has such a provider number, he or she may be on a directory online which can lead to more clients in our area, as well as paid training for a wide variety of topics that can enhance your career by S&DS.
