    How ConsidraCare works

    ConsidraCare places dedicated live-in professionals within the homes of seniors, and provides their families and caregivers with a state-of-the-art-platform to improve collaboration, increase visibility and improve the delivery of care.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Live-in care is provided by a full-time professional caregiver living in your loved one’s own home. The caregiver helps with everything from personal care to household tasks. Families have to provide the live-in caregiver with a separate private room with the same standard of accommodation as a rental room.

    ConsidraCare maintains a pool of prescreened and experienced caregivers. Our client care experts first discuss your elderly care needs with you and your family members and develop a complementary live-in senior care plan. 

     

     

    We will then select caregivers from our available pools of approved caregivers who best meet your elderly home care needs and provide you with their resumes and short video introductions. You and your family members will interview the caregivers you shortlist. Once you and your family have made a choice, your live-in caregiver will arrive on a designated date and start providing  elderly care as per our care plan.

     

     

    All of ConsidraCare’s caregivers go through a rigorous screening process including interviews, background and vulnerability sector checks and onboarding training. 

    Currently, there are two agency models common in Canada for in-home caregiving.

     

    Hourly agencies:

    Hourly agencies have employees on their own payroll which they provide to clients for shifts ranging from a minimum of 3 to 24 hours, typically at $30 – $35 per hour. Although hourly agencies provide superior quality of care, are involved in care-planning and free the families from the hassle of caregiver employment and payroll, they are expensive, cannot guarantee the same caregiver every time, and have to deal with caregiver punctuality and churn. 40 hours of weekly care with a typical agency can cost as much as $6,500 per month (including HST & GST). The agencies take almost 50% of this to cover their overheads, resulting in low caregiver wages.

     

    Placement agencies:

    Placement agencies help recruit caregivers, typically from abroad. Although lower in cost, these agencies do not typically get involved in caregiving and caregiver management, cannot guarantee caregiver retention for more than a few months, and have long placement cycles, especially for overseas caregivers which can take months. Most agencies charge 15% – 20% of a caregiver’s annual wage as a one-time placement fee.

     

    ConsidraCare:

    We use an innovative business model, supported by a state-of-the-art technology platform to combine the best aspects of the above two models. 

     

    The caregiver will be your employee. However, ConsidraCare will provide a platform for your caregiver and the family members to manage elderly home care. Our app and team will support:

    • Caregiver screening and hiring
    • Providing guidance on the terms of the employment agreement between you and your hired approved Considracare live-in caregiver
    • Updating the senior care plan of your loved at least once a month
    • Scheduling and monitoring completion of daily caregiving tasks
    • Arranging for backup care if your caregiver gets sick or needs to take a leave
    • Taking care of your caregiver’s payroll
    • Providing the approved ConsidraCare Live-in caregiver training and guidance through our online university

     

    The benefit of Considracare

    Unlike placement agencies, we do not charge an upfront placement fee, but only charge an 18% management fee on caregiver wages. We do not recruit caregivers from abroad which makes it easier to deploy, replace and provide backup and respite for caregivers. We are managed by a seasoned team with decades of experience in healthcare and home care in Ontario, not corporate executives and Millenials interested in hustles and exits. We do not believe that technology can replace human interactions and only use it to enhance not replace personal care. Lastly, we are a social enterprise committed to helping seniors stay at home and caregivers earn fair wages. We are a family-owned business, not backed by profit-motivated corporations or venture capitalists and not interested in sacrificing quality for growth.

    We expect families to pay between $20 to $21 per hour for most of the live-in caregivers placed by ConsidraCare. An extremely complex senior care plan, or care for  a couple, may require higher wages. With an approximate statutory cost of 14% for CPP, EI, WSIB and vacation allowance, and 20% management fee for ConsidraCare services, we expect the cost for 40 hours of senior care per week to be between $1,100 – $1,160 per week or $4,600  or $4,900 per month, all inclusive.

    This is significantly less than the cost of a typical hourly agency, which can charge $1,400 – $1,700 per week or $6,000 – $7,200 per month for 40 hours of senior care per week.

    In private retirement homes, full-time personal senior care (beyond basic elderly care service) is usually an add-on.  The total cost for a private suite and dedicated elderly care on the assisted levels of a retirement residence can be as much as $9,500 per month, possibly more.

    No, the approved ConsidraCare’s live-in caregivers are Canadian nationals or PR holders already living in and entitled to work in Canada.

    We are tapping into the pool of the 400,000+ professional caregivers available across Canada to provide them with better and fair employment opportunities. 

    Not hiring caregivers from abroad ensures faster arrangement of care and better peace of mind for the families.

    ConsidraCare believes that the best way to assure the quality of elderly care is to start with experienced and well-qualified caregivers who are closely matched with the families’ senior care requirements. We use the same rigorous process used by the largest hourly agencies to vet the caregivers for our pool and provide guidance to families on how to interview and select caregivers.

    Our caregivers deliver 1:1 care to your senior loved ones for more than 80% of the time, unlike constant caregiver switchovers elsewhere, ensuring consistency of in-home senior care and strong bonding between the live-in caregivers and families.

    Our caregiver app and client app then empowers the caregiver and families to implement high standards of elderly care in the loved one’s home through collaborative senior care plan development, ensuring quality assurance tasks are combined with tasks related to activities of daily living,  and maintaining a constant dialogue between caregivers and families. We also provide tools to caregivers to enhance their skills and manage stress, and ensure regular breaks with prearranged backup,  all of which have been proven to improve the quality of elderly care in a home care setting.
