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.

    TORONTO, ON – Project 2009 – a new project from the caregiver industry – is calling on the Ontario and Federal governments to impose new standards for caregiver recruiting and placement agencies.

    “What we need is an end of the race to the bottom approach that came with deregulation” said Tristan Downe-Dewdney, the Canadian Caregiver Association’s (CCA) spokesperson for their 2009 initiative. “Low standards hurt caregivers and they hurt the businesses that have been ethically conducting their operations”.

    The CCA is calling for minimum standards and an industry review mechanism to ensure that an agency is up to code in order to operate. Their proposed ‘Whitelist’ is preferred over a blacklist, given the ability of agencies to rebrand and change ownership to avoid scrutiny.

    In addition to investigations, the CCA is also calling for fee caps, warning that there needs to be a balance between expropriation and prohibition, so that compassionate businesses can continue to operate. The CCA welcomes the Ontario Government’s commitment to action and will be working with stakeholders to develop the sustainable made-in-Ontario solutions needed to raise standards and to pressure the Federal Government to take concrete steps to end exploitation.

    The Canadian Caregivers Association is a Canada-wide association representing industry partners who support high standards, respecting caregiver and family rights. Founded in 2004, the CCA has pushed for industry reforms for the past 5 years. Project 2009 is a special initiative in response to the unique opportunities for change provided by recent media coverage of caregiver exploitation in the Greater Toronto Area.

    I am Mr Dempsey Purnel,i am 42 Years Old and a single parent, from United
    Kingdom. I am contractor, Due to the nature of my work I don t
    usually stay at home as
    required.I have just kid by name Chris .
    My kid,a boy by age 6 years.I want male or

    I have equally decided that I will be paying you 1,500 BRITISH POUNDS every

    to enable you buy some of the thing you may need urgently.Although i will be
    responsible for some of the money that will be required for your traveling
    documents,you have to agree with me on the fact that i will pay for your
    Visa and you will get your working permit.
    I have as well decided that the working hour is just 5 hours per day to
    allow you have time for yourself. You will have the following as your
    responsibility: taking care of my son, preparing food for him, taking
    him to his school bus stand where the school bus will pick him up every
    morning.When you finish your duty you can have your free time in your
    private room.So i will like you to get back to me if you are interested in
