Hi teresa lynn,

Thank you very much for your question. Unfortunately, Caring.com is a US based site and because of this our resources about getting paid to be a caregiver are US based. We're hopeful another member will have information that will be helpful to you.

Take care, and good luck!

There is a site for British Columbian's to join to find out about supports and give advice when possible. It's a big issue. Find it at; http://www.facebook.com/groups/388185841196134/

Lois, This particular conversation was started a year ago in the former discussion forums. Like, "Caring for a Spouse with Dementia," we moved it to this new support group format. The discussion and people you're looking for are here: http://www.caring.com/support-groups/caring-for-a-spouse/d9479723?page=182 For future reference, you can get to it quickly via your subscriptions page: http://www.caring.com/account/subscriptions (see "Support Group Conversations You're Watching" and click "Caring for a Spouse: Caring for a spouse with dementia My husband of 47 years has..." link). Once you get to that discussion, you'll see page numbers at the bottom of the screen -- click on the last one to get to the most recent comments. Thanks!
