Japanese Speaking Caregiver in Switzerland

I want to move to Milan and take my Japanese speaking mother with me. Has anyone heard of a home health care agency in Switzerland or any place close to Milan with Japanese speaking caregiver? My mother is physically fine but she has a tendency to wander around and stays up all night without medication. My mother will most likely forget English completely in a few years so a Japanese speaker is ideal.

Also there is an Assisted Living Facility for Seniors in Switzerland with a Japanese Community with English speaking staff. Lugano would be ideal since I will be in Milan but my Google search led me to believe the majority of Japanese speakers would be in Geneva.

I have long term care insurance that covers international care takers and facilities as long as they are licensed.

Re: Japanese Speaking Caretaker in Switzerland

There is a website I've used and found great jobs in the States as well as in Switzerland. It is called greataupair.com which allows you to connect with caregivers of various types while selecting the language requirements etc.

Click on "hire", then "senior care" and on the left select "language options".
Besides several other search refinements, you can select Paid experiences as well as certifications:
Paid Experience
Case Worker
Certified Nursing Assistant
Licensed RN
Nursing Intern
Nursing Student
Physical Therapy
Physician's Assistant
Practicing RN
Senor Care Companion
Certifications
Behavioral Issues
Bonded
CPR
First Aid
Insured
Licensed
NAPGGM certified
NACCM certified

Hope this helps.
All the best with your move to Milan!

Why Switzerland? You're making life complicated trying to get permits for two different countries. I think you'll struggle.

Re: Japanese Speaking Caregiver in Switzerland

@Chaconne Thank you. I've looked into GreatAuPair.com yesterday. I couldn't find anyone who speaks Japanese. Generally Japanese people abroad don't become caregivers so it's very difficult to find someone who speaks Japanese outside of places with a large Japanese population. Every person I met in Milan said I'm the first Japanese person they ever met so it's very difficult.

Re: Japanese Speaking Caregiver in Switzerland

As Mirfield said, why Switzerland? Your mother will not get a permit to live here, even if you are paying her expenses. There are quotas on the number of permits issued to non-EU nationals and they only apply to people who are in employment here. Employers have to apply for these so there's no way your mother will get one and there's no other way to do so unless you have a job here and can persuade the authorities to let you bring her as your dependent (no automatic right to do this) or you/she are so incredibly wealthy that you don't need to work and would still require you to live in Switzerland, not Italy.

If you want to move to Milan then you need to be looking at Italian care facilities because you won't be able to move her to Switzerland.

Do you even have a job in Milan to move to? There are restrictions on non-EU nationals moving anywhere in the EU, exactly what they are depends on the country.
