Caregiver Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Caregiver?

Caregiver in Vancouver:
Pros: I love working with seniors and helping them so they can continue to live in their own homes.
Cons: Money is not great. Hours are scattered and can be lost if a client passes away or moves into a full time care facility. There's not a lot of upward mobility.
