  • Can your home be a caregiver home for one more?

    Open your home and hearts to earn up to $6,000 monthly

    Last year, as part of PLEA Community Services’ Family Caregiver program, 125 families and individuals across the Lower Mainland opened their hearts and homes to 146 adults who, due to complex challenges and health conditions, cannot live on their own.

    These family caregivers come from a range of health and community care backgrounds. Often they are licensed nurses, healthcare workers or they have strong skills and experience in providing community and health services. They were able to put their healthcare skills to good use without leaving the comfort of their own home and create a new or second income for their family in the process. Currently, family caregivers earn between $3,200 – $6,000 per bed,  per month to provide a warm and safe home for their clients.

    We have found that caregiver homes work best when the entire family gets involved so they are encouraged to have family members apply to become respite workers so they can all work together as a family to provide the care needed. They are also equipped with all the knowledge and skills they need to be successful in the role. As well, there is support available to them 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

    This rewarding experience can mean that the entire family becomes an important part of the care team that works to support adults to live comfortably and independently, and they witness the positive impact they have on the life of another, each and every day.

    If you are interested in getting more information about this unique and rewarding job opportunity, please call Laura at 236.333.2682 or email careathome@plea.bc.ca

    Are you sure you are looking for me?

    We certainly are if you are:

    • over 21 years of age,
    • legally able to work in Canada,
    • financially stable,
    • able to provide three references,
    • able to provide each person you care for with their own bedroom or suite,
    • able to provide a medical report

    We are seeking homes throughout the Lower Mainland and the Fraser Valley.

    Placements are typically long-term, but we also need homes for shorter-term.
