Josh, thank you for creating this great resource.
I am a Canadian and I am interested in living/working in Japan. I have a young child and wife who is disabled.
My wife has a form of muscular dystrophy. As a result, she has to use a power wheelchair and has limited mobility. Therefore, I have a few questions:
– If I was working in Japan full time, would my wife be able to have a caretaker / personal support worker help her? If yes, how much would it cost to employ a caretaker?
– If my wife were to get sick, would she entitled to hospital care or would there be fees associated with hospital visits? If yes, could you provide an estimate of how much staying in a hospital would cost?
– If I obtained a job, for example, as an English Teacher, would my child and wife automatically qualify for a visa as well?
