Home Share Provider Wanted

 

Home Share matches a skilled caregiver with an individual with a developmental disability to share living space and help facilitate as much independence as possible. It is an opportunity for an individual to develop skills within the home and build relationships in their community.

The Home Share Provider supports an adult with developmental disabilities to pursue activities independently from their family, much like most adults in the community. The goal is to create and develop social networks for the individual they are supporting and build awareness and inclusion in the community.

Home Share providers receive compensation for the supports they offer with specific amounts determined by Community Living British Columbia (CLBC). Respite is provided to give Home Share caregivers a break for a few hours or overnight.

Caregiver Screening Process:

NOTE:  Home Share Providers are not employees of RSCL.  They are independent contractors providing a service.

  • Potential caregivers will be assessed based on their philosophy of community inclusion; practical caregiving skills; flexibility in meeting specific needs; physical appropriateness of their home; family dynamics; availability to provide serve; and ability to meet the conditions of the contract.

Conditions of Contract:

  • Legal age 19 years +
  • Canadian citizen

  • Current First Aid and CPR Certificate
  • ICBC Record Search, and copy of driver’s licence
  • Vehicle and home insurance

When a caregiver has been screened and approved, the caregiver will have an orientation and the matching process can commence.
