What it’s Like to be a Children’s Respite Caregiver?

If you have experience working with children with developmental disabilities and have space in your home & heart, we would love to speak with you. Becoming a Childrens’ Respite Caregiver enables you to give back to your community and support families who have a child with a disability.

Respite is a family-to-family program where the child typically goes into the home of the caregiver to provide the family with a break from continuous care of their child. Respite visits generally happen over a weekend or on an overnight basis. However, a more flexible schedule can be designed to meet the needs of the family.

Over the years, we have developed longstanding relationships with caregivers who have found being a respite caregiver extremely rewarding and enriching. By becoming a respite caregiver, you’re providing families with much needed rest and offering a new experience for the child you’re providing respite care for as well as your own family.

In exchange for your time and your efforts as a Childrens’ Respite Caregiver, you will be provided with a small monetary compensation set by the government. Most of all, you will be making an impact in the life a child and supporting local families who are in need.
