Caregiver Hiring

Being a caregiver is considered as one of the noblest profession because it is one way of extending a helping hand to someone who needs it. Although the profession itself is considered by others to be degrading in terms of personality, the joy and self fulfillment it brings to other people especially to those who practice this profession cannot be compared to any amount of monetary compensation that they receive. This is simply because helping others in need is one of the noblest things to do.

In other countries like Japan, Israel, Hong Kong, Taiwan, United States, and Canada, caregiver hiring is very much rampant because the number of local caregivers are not sufficient enough compared to the number of nursing homes and its residents. In the United States, the number of nursing homes is over 16,000 with a combined number of beds totaling 1.7 million and an occupancy rate of 86 percent. That’s roughly 1.5 million nursing home residents who need caregiver assistance. This huge discrepancy in statistics between nursing home residents and the number of available local caregivers can be even out if the government will make a bold move to redefine the law on foreign caregiver hiring.

In Canada, there is now what the government calls the Live-In Caregiver Program which allows foreign caregiver hiring. In this program, the Canadian government allows caregiver hiring outside the country if the employer is finding a hard time looking for a suitable local caregiver or a foreign caregiver who is already in the country. After that, the employer has to have a positive labour market opinion regarding his application for foreign caregiver hiring.

On the part of the caregivers, the Canadian governments’ requirements for the qualifications of caregivers in the Live-In Caregiver Hiring Program are the following:

  1. Successful completion of the equivalent of a Canadian Secondary School Education.
  2. Completion of 6 months caregiver training or 1 year of work experience in the same capacity.
  3. Able to understand or communicate in either English or French.
