Hello British Columbia! We are Locum Home.
- March 21, 2023
We are excited to introduce ourselves as Locum Home, an online platform dedicated to providing short-term accommodations exclusively to healthcare professionals registered and practicing in BC. Our platform offers a unique opportunity for members of communities across beautiful British Columbia to list their homes as short-term accommodation options for healthcare professionals.
BC is facing a healthcare shortage
As many of you know, BC is currently facing a shortage of healthcare professionals, which is impacting everyone, regardless of age or background. This shortage is partly due to a lack of housing options in many communities, as healthcare professionals need a place to live to be able to work in their respective areas.
Travelling and relocating healthcare professionals need an easy and safe way to find a comfortable place to call home.
Imagine moving to a new community from outside of the province or even outside of the country and having to find your “forever home” before you have even been able to explore the community. Locum Home can connect newly recruited healthcare professionals with a safe and furnished home where they can stay until they find a permanent residence. They can also choose to book Locum Homes in different neighborhoods while they search for their long-term home. This way, they can find the best area suited to their lifestyle before signing a lease or a mortgage.
On the other hand, many healthcare professionals travel for work and although some might enjoy staying in hotels, many would prefer to ‘come home’ at the end of their work day. Locum Home is a great option for travelling healthcare professionals who want all the amenities of a home when their work takes them on the road.
We believe in helping healthcare
At Locum Home, we believe in Canadian healthcare and want to see it thrive. We have created a transparent fee structure that costs both hosts and guests much less than other short-term rental sites. We have also made a commitment to donate 1% of our annual profits to Hospital Foundations across BC every year.
So why not check us out and register to become a host or guest today?
By joining Locum Home, you are not only making extra money by renting out your home, you’re helping healthcare professionals ensure that your community has access to the care it needs.
