Hiring a live in caregiver

There are many types of nannies and caregivers out there and they are each suitable for different types of families. Some prefer hiring a live in caregiver, while others a live-out. There are benefits in every case and by assessing your needs, you can decide upon the type that has to be hired. Going through the process can be done alone or using the services of an agency. The last option is especially recommended when you need a LMIA, as you can obtain professional assistance at every step.

Many families in Canada choose to hire foreigners as nannies, they have experience, they don’t have high salary expectations and they need full-time jobs and even a place to live. However, to get things done right and to hire a foreigner, employers have to get the LMIA, which stands for Labour Market Impact Assessment. This document shows that foreigners are needed to fill in various jobs and employers can apply for one online. After getting the LMIA, workers can apply for the work permit. If you haven’t had anything to do with such a document before, you might not know what the steps are.

However, an agency offering the possibility to hire a live in caregiver or nannies in general, can assist employers with LMIA and make sure everything is done properly, from a legal point of view. There are many advantages when it comes to hiring a nanny that gets to live within the house. First of all, they are always there and they are flexible when it comes to schedule, as they don’t have strict working hours. This means they can work during the night or the evening. New parents that have a new-born baby will certainly appreciate this, as they can relax more and get the needed time to recover.

Even if families have more than one child, they can hire a live in caregiver that will take care of them. From this point of view, you can end up saving money, as you are not charged for extra working hours or for every minute or hour you are late home. Working family members might not always have the needed time to prepare the child in the morning, take them to day-care or such. A live-in nanny can take care of every aspect, as they will get up, prepare breakfast and take them to the school bus or directly to the day-care.

Besides taking care of children, the live in caregiver will take over some housekeeping chores, they are able to clean around and do the laundry. This is certainly a great bonus, as family members might not always have enough energy after a full working day. More peace of mind is given while the nanny lives in the house, as the family gets to know the person better, interact with her/him and be certain that their child and their home is in good hands and they have nothing to worry about.
