SOSsitter to help Canadian Forces personnel balance family life with military duty demands

MONTREAL, March 26, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - SOSsitter, the site that helps Canadians find a local nanny, babysitter, special needs caregiver, pet sitter, or a cleaning lady, is offering a permanent discount on its services to families in the Canadian Forces.

"The Canadian Forces today have more than one million individuals in service, and many tend to their family needs while on duty," says Paulina Podgorska, founder of SOSsitter. "We have more than 15,000 caregivers and housekeepers registered across Canada, they are all ready to help."

The military personnel and their families struggle with the work / life balance just like most, but they also deal with uncommon stress from often having one family member on assignment abroad and from dealing with frequent relocations from base to base. Each relocation means a loss of the local support network.

"The sacrifice that the whole family goes through can be alleviated by having an easy way to find experienced help around the house in the new location. SOSsitter is proud to provide support to our troops in recognition of their sacrifices and dedication," adds Paulina.

SOSsitter is offering a discount for the first time on all SOSsitter memberships to all members of the Canadian Forces through the Canadian Forces Appreciation Program.

SOSsitter already offers the Work Life Balance with Enterprise Solutions program that champions a better lifestyle for the whole family as well as for the employer.

Today, most families are overwhelmed, no matter what their circumstances are.  It's very difficult to find a nanny or a housekeeper. The SOSsitter portal is an efficient, fast and affordable service allowing anybody to find a housekeeper in their neighbourhood amongst the 15,000+ registered candidates - in ONE click. By entering a postal code, one can get an exclusive access to several at-home caretakers or housekeepers in the neighbourhood, anywhere in Canada.  Pictures, detailed profiles, recommendations, work history and third party assessments help build a short list of favourite candidates to interview.

Likewise, any company or organisation willing to give that extra help to their employees by helping them balance their family demands with their professional responsibilities can go check out the Corporate Plan on
