As a provider of family caregivers, we consider our philosophy to be the foundation of our values and how we work with families like yours.
At Family Matters Caregivers Inc. we believe choosing the right person to care for your children is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. We are a nanny placement agency that specializes in customer service. We spend the time listening closely to exactly what the employer and the candidates are looking for. This scrutiny enables us to match clients and applicants successfully.
As working mothers ourselves we understand your children are your most precious gifts. We take our role in helping you find the best possible person to look after them very seriously. All our candidates are interviewed in person and pre-screened by us. When interviewing a potential candidate, we apply the ultimate test: would we feel comfortable leaving our own children with this person? Only if the answer is a confident ‘yes’ do we accept that candidate’s application at our agency.
We realize that our clients are very busy people. We do not waste your time or ours sending you countless candidates to interview. We carefully choose only the applicants who best suit your needs.
If you are thinking of hiring a live-in caregiver, plan ahead. Sponsoring one of our fabulous candidates from Hong Kong can take 8-9 months. This timeframe is predicated on Immigration Canada and Service Canada.
At Family Matters Caregivers Inc. we also help families find suitable caregivers for the elderly and disabled. Hiring a live-in caregiver is an excellent alternative to institutionalized care. More and more people are choosing to be independent in their own homes as long as possible. Live-In caregivers can provide help to recovering, disabled, chronically or terminally ill adults who would ordinarily be cared for in a nursing home or hospital. Families are recognizing the benefits of keeping their loved ones at home.
When Family Matters Caregivers Inc. sends applicants for interviews it is important for us to find out as much information as possible about the person requiring care. What special needs does the person have? What will the duties of the caregiver be? Is it strictly a care giving job or does the person also require light housekeeping and meal preparation? Does the caregiver require a nursing or Health Care Aid background? Will medication need to be administered? Is a driver’s license required? The more information we have the better we can try to match up a suitable caregiver.
