RESPITE FAMILIES NEEDED
Community Living Oshawa/Clarington is currently looking for individuals or families willing to share their home and provide respite to people who have a developmental disability.
In a respite role, you will support the person within your daily routines in your home, while providing individualized supports required by the person. You will receive a per diem (daily) rate in exchange for your support. Experience working with people who have a developmental disability would be an asset. Additional knowledge or experience in supporting people with mental health, diabetes, epilepsy or other medical conditions would also be an advantage.
Successful candidates must provide current police check for anyone over 18 living at the home, reference checks, and fire inspection by local fire department. Individuals should also hold a valid first aid/CPR certificate.
Most of the current needs are for weekend respite, but there is also the occasional weekday of full week respite needed.
If you are able to provide us with one weekend a month of support, and would like to explore this further, call us at 905-576-3261 ext 101 or email at email@example.com
Every one of us has unique skills and talents.
