I most definitely would not with a capital N, trust them with any confidential information.
A good place to check for an assistant/driver are churches. These days, maybe just me, I would not trust Craig's list or the paper either. Check around with the people you know who might know someone. If you can find a few, you can develop a pool to call on.
If you have very personal information you need to divulge, make an appointment with personnel at your bank.
Hope this helps.

Subject: [nfb-talk] Finding an assistant
I have recently lost my eyesight. I am thinking about finding a paid sighted assistant to help me here and there occasionally. Could someone please recommend a way to find an assistant for hire?
Unfortunately I don't have any relatives in this country (I live in Washington state). My friends can help me sometimes, but they are all busy, and I would like to find a reliable way of solving small problems, like filling out a form or walking me to a new unfamiliar place.
I don't need assistant's services often; perhaps an hour every week or even every two weeks. I can afford paying a reasonable amount of money for this. I tried craigslist in my area, but I only saw professionals like dentist's assistants offering their servies.
And also do you guys think is it ok to trust a paid assistant some sensitive information, like my SSN?
(This is my first message here, so please forgive me if it's not the right place to discuss such a question).
