    Duties include house cleaning, laundry, grocery shopping, driving, help with washing and toilet for elderly man with special needs and disabilities.

    How do you plan to get her a visa?

    Rural Filipinas from the province generally speak very little, if any, English.

    I doubt if 1/1000 knows how to drive.

    Wouldn't have the slightest clue how to shop in a supermarket.

    Needs a bit more thought......

    Above is based on 20 years living here.

    Realizing that at-home assisted-living / home-care services are onerously expensive the thought would be to go to an assisted-living facility near ones family.

    The potential for an abusive situation certainly festers in the seeking out of services from abroad.
    Either the care-giver or the recipient-of-care could be easily in harms way without any accreditation from either side of the very personal 'live-in' arrangement that you are requesting.

    Anyone with the proper credentials to make a visa for travel and reside for more than 90 days in Canada would assuredly take a financially secure and relatively independent position at an accredited centre or facility.

    Possibly start with a Philippine Embassy (Consulate) office with your inquiry essentially for 'au-pair' ('live-in') care of elderly man with special needs and disabilities.

    Then again, might be best for said individual to be cared for in the Philippines...albeit that train of thought would have best been taken care of in advance (which isn't always a possibility).

    Good luck to you dharmabum
    I liked your thread on traveling to destinations as a passenger on freighter ships.

    I don't look good naked anymore, but still need caregiver.

    Monday April 6,2015

    Sunny and clear on the bay today, but fresh snow on the hills above the village.

    I know I'm taking a shot in the dark on this but getting desperate. Bureaucratic process is an unfathomable mystery for me and I lost most of the mind I still have in the bureaucratic wars.

    Would that I could return to PI and find a partner in person but my health is beyond travel by air. Blood sugar ok. Heart ok. BP ok with a pill... etc.

    After my last RTW2 trip the bucket list was complete. Taken by indifference and no more goals my troublesome size ballooned up to where I'm now about 450 lbs.

    Even buying two seats to fly it would be impossible without taking an attendant or companion for all the logistics etc. I'm shopping for a 'Scooter' as we speak.

    If I could reach PI directly by sea I would but still it would be onerous and I plunked most of my modest saving to buy a huge 2 bedroom condo on the waterfront. On ships if you can't walk aboard you are cargo.

    Two days ago the " Sheila Ann" tied up outfront and loaded sand. She is a small Bulker sailing under Nasau registration.

    SHEILA ANN - Bulk Carrier: current position and details | IMO 9138094, MMSI 308717000, Callsign C6FD2 | Registered in Bahamas - AIS Marine Traffic

    Looks to me like someone bought a beach or it's destined for concrete construction. I like to think the former. IF the later I would imagine the mansions of the Malecon getting a face lift.

    My pension is rather small but I still have sufficient savings to invest in some comforts as I age into senility and final peace.

    A friend sent me this link about changes to improve caregivers getting into Canada. Please spread this info around.


    Improvements to Canada?s Caregiver Program


    My weight issues are directly related to mental health. Food is an addiction ! I have narrowed it all down in my life to 4 serious addictions and I reckon some people that are thoughtful and looked at food in the Western world will relate.

    My addictions are fresh air, natural light, sugar and salt. I use a narcotic for pain but doubt it will become addictive. Where I live is an epi-center for soft drug use both recreational and/or medical. I tried many pain remedies on that path but without good results .

    The relationship I seek is a win win for myself and a Filipino family. Canadian citizen ship is a worthy goal for many in PI. The nation has a tradition of sending workers overseas and monies sent home are huge.

    In the world workers from PI are valued for their work ethic and cheerful attitude. They are well regarded abroad in many lands. However to go through the bureaucracy on both ends is onerous costly and corrupt.

    Who hasn't taken a chance and skipped the Que to simplify permissions ? A nice new pair of shoes can go along way me thinks.

    So I am appealing to TD denizens and fellow x-pats for help. The 7 league boots are hung up on the wall in my dusty barn.

    I'm mostly a shut in but chose my location carefully. This is a world class tourist destination. I am steps from the ocean and a few blocks from all amenities.

    Presently I'm exploring a new life as a pshchonautical, organoleptic neopagan but it's true, I don't' look good naked anymore. Google : "I don't look good naked anymore" if link doesn't work.

    English ? Useful but not totally necessary. I can educate and instruct as required. The basics are a common language. Everybody eats, gets dressed, uses the toilet and baths daily. Everybody exchanges money for food or can easily learn. The cultural differences are a strength this country has embraced for 200 years.
    https://video.search.yahoo.com/video...&hsimp=yhs-001


    btw. I can offer temporary accommodation to any TD travelers. if your headed this way let me know. This is an Island paradise.

    Cheers and good health

    I thought you're looking for a caregiver?

    You'd find that even in the PI women expect a bit more from a partnership than wiping somebody's behind.

    dharmabum , that was a very interesting read from 200kg on Vancouver Is. and explains quite a bit as to your requirements.

    I am happy to read that your bucket list is complete and I wish you good luck on life's journey moving forward.

    A 450 lb. behind at that...What's wrong with this needs list for a care giver that diet and exercise coach couldn't resolve?

    I was in the Embassy this AM doing some paperwork with wife and kids. At the Social Security office which is part of the same building doing all the visa crap.

    Quite sad.....Huge 300 lb balding dorks in their 50's, teenage "girlfriend" trailing along behind. Queuing up for "fiance" visas to some trailer park in Alabama. Baseball cap central....

    These kids are just desperate to escape the grinding poverty of this place - and the lack of opportunity.

    Still, sad to watch......

    So, you would like a filipino Wife who is at least 15 years old .
    You are too old , fat and decrepit to go and find one yourself.
    You want a carer , a servant. A slave . You want her to go to the shops, buy and prepare the food so that she can then shovel it into your mouth so that you can get even fatter and in return you will send some money to her Parents .
    A win/win situation? Not for her it wont be .
    Do this girl a favour and let her get on with her own life or a least make a will out leaving her with everything that you have

    It's the way of the world, is it?...It's no fluke that it's set up this way...Gives us pause to embrace the ancients' wisdom on themes of morals and ethics which haven't changed in thousands of years...

    I hope you understand that for many people, myself included, that age range gives a LOT of problems, all the more so that it now appears you are looking for a "partner".
