Live-in Care Program
For long-term in-home senior care, there is no better and more affordable option for you, as well as your loved one who needs care, than the Federal Government’s Live-in Caregiver Program or what is now known as the Home Support Worker Pilot Program. Offered by our government to address the shortage of local caregivers available to provide care on a live-in basis, this program allows your family to hire an in-home caregiver in Canada to help with the domestic and personal care needs, and anything that you and the client require to remain comfortable at home.
What We Offer:
A More Affordable Senior Care
through the In-Home Caregiver Program
When you hire an in-home caregiver in Canada, you get to reap several benefits: first and foremost being the continuity of quality senior care. For the family, it’s the peace of mind, knowing that someone is there to supervise and to make life as comfortable as possible for your loved one.
The live-in caregiver you hire with help from Surework Home Care Solutions will perform the following in-home senior care duties (but not limited to):
- Meal Preparation
- Personal Care
- Incontinence Care
- Mobility Assistance
- Medication Reminders
- General Supervision
- Dementia Care
The cost for an in-home caregiver is based on the median wage for a home support worker in your area. Please check the link provided to see the average wage in your area. A good estimate for cost would be between $3,000 and $4,000 each month.
Please keep in mind that when you hire an in-home caregiver in Canada under the Home Support Worker Pilot, the work permit application process may take up to 12 months. Hence, you will need some planning prior to the arrival of the in-home care provider! But there’s nothing to worry about. We can help you in this regard. If you need immediate live-in care while awaiting the arrival of the permanent caregiver, we can provide you with a bridge live-in caregiver.
Depending on what you and the caregiver has agreed to, the caregiver may stay in a separate bedroom in the house to assist with all the Activities of Daily Living and to respond and assist overnight, if necessary.
