Carmenuta, I am wondering: are you a caregiver in the country you are originally from? And if so for how long? I was considering being a caregiver.

Are live-in caregivers allowed to leave the house ever when they are caring for someone?

Hi Carmen,

     When I left this morning, the forum is clean. Now it's again beset with lots of spam . Anyway, we know the threads we're watching so we search. Hope you're having a good day. Let me know how your fox trot went. I have two left feet.

J

Hi Minreau,
For your question:

"The Live-in Caregiver Program allows professional caregivers to work in Canada. Caregivers are individuals who are qualified to work without supervision in a private household providing care for children, elderly persons or people who have disabilities. The live-in caregiver must live in the employer's home.

Live-in criteria

An important requirement of the program is that employees must live in the employer's home. The Live-in Caregiver Program exists only because there is a shortage of Canadians or permanent residents to fill the need for live-in care work. There is no shortage of Canadians or permanent residents available for care giving positions where there is no live-in requirement."


But on the caregiver's days off, s/he can go where s/he wishes.

Hi Minreau,

Sorry about the delay in responding. I don't usually get online on the weekends. I didn't exaclty understand your question but i'll try and answer to what I understood. Yes, I worked as a live-in-caregiver in my country. The situation was different (it was not a government program like here, in Canada). I worked with 10 children at a children's home.

While in Canada, while in the live-in program, you are allowed to LIVE IN the house of the people you are taking care of. If you mean, if you can leave on your time off, yes, that's allowed, and you may have friends you could spend the night over, and such, or weekends. I think J (job_seeker) did a really good job putting up the info you need.

Let us know if this makes sense.
