The Greater Vancouver area has been experiencing a shortage of qualified local caregivers for seniors. Unable to find and retain professionally trained caregivers, many residents throughout Canada are turning to friends and relatives to help care for aging family members. Some family members are even leaving their jobs ortaking an early retirement to take on the responsibilities of caregiver for a loved one. In most situations this is done to avoid sending the loved one to a nursing home and to allow them to have continuity in a place where memories were built for years.
Are you a people’s person? Do you enjoy helping others improve their overall health and quality of life? There is no greater joy in life than to see a smile on someone’s face after you have given them the help they needed. A caregiver position maybe a good fit for you.
