Our Home Share program provides the opportunity for Independent Contractors to play an integral role in the lives of the Individuals we support. Through Home Share we provide an opportunity for individuals to live with a family, couple or single caregiver in a home and environment of their choice.
We work closely with the people we support and their support network, using a Person Centered approach to ensure we find Home Share providers that match the person’s personality, support needs, lifestyle choices and interests.
Home Share providers are under contract with HOMES to provide full time support to the individual living in their home. All Home Share provider’s undergo a rigorous screening process including a Criminal Record Check, in-depth home study which asks questions about the family dynamics, lifestyle, person support network and conflict management just to mention a few.
The H.O.M.E. Society is centered around a philosophy of Gentle Teaching where by, the needs, rights, and wishes of the individual are paramount. Rather than try to change those we serve we seek to change ourselves and the environment to allow those we serve to feel safe, loved, loving and engaged.
In addition to a combination of education, professional and personal experience, we are looking for caregivers who reside within the Fraser Valley Region, who have the desire to “give back”, have experience living, socializing and working with individuals in a supportive care setting. Experience working with people with developmental disabilities, mental health issues, behavioral challenges and/or high medical needs. Related work experience or post-secondary education is an asset. Role modeling a healthy, positive life style is required in addition to being responsible, flexible, respectful, empathetic, and having a sense of humor. Excellent communication skills, (written, oral and interpersonal) are all essential.
Length of contract and compensation are TBD on a case by case basis.
