How do I find Staff to Care for My Family Member?


For parents who employ staff to care for loved ones, finding staff can often be a frustration. What follows are some ways that I have had success in finding staff in the Vancouver area.

Putting an ad in the local paper is very expensive and does not always produce results.

I have used the HRDC website to find staff. Just go to their jobsbank website. You can join and then post your job advertisment. The added bonus with this site is all that there is a lot of employer information at your finger tips.

Another way to place an ad is on Craigslist or on Kijiji.

Or you can try sending a posting to Capilano College, Sprott Shaw, or SFU so that students can have access to your job posting.

Things to include in the job posting is the hours of work, what the position involves, the skill level and experience required, where the job is located and the rate of pay. I usually ask that resumes and cover letters are emailed to me and I do not include my address or telephone.

Who else has tips on how to find staff?
