New Brunswick is looking for professional caregivers


The Department of Social Development is looking for individuals interested in becoming professional caregivers to provide full-time, stay-at-home help for our most vulnerable children with complex needs. By the end of 2021, eight professional care homes will be created in the province’s different regions. According to the Social Development Minister Bruce Fitch, this initiative will ‘fill the gap in the continuum of care for children who have complex needs and help those with mental health challenges. Interested individuals will be evaluated as to their interest, education, knowledge, qualifications, and parenting ability and skills for children with behavioural, emotional, mental health, or complex medical needs.
