Seeking energetic, caring and creative individuals to care for children with special needs. The person will be responsible for the overall physical safety and care needs in the home of the child or children they care for. They will engage the child in positive ways that will promote their social and emotional development. At the direction of the parents/caregivers, the person will provide fun and engaging interactions through play, games, arts and crafts, educational activities, baking, science projects, and indoor and outdoor play. In addition, at the discretion of parents/caregivers, some personal grooming may be requested if needed.
It is a flexible position that allows the Respite Care Provider to work the hours, dates, time and locations they choose. Note: the parent determines the days, hours and location of service. Our agency covers Alameda and Contra Costa County.
Our Respite Program gives parents and caregivers a break from the daily demands of caring for a child with special needs. Parents and caregivers use respite services to help them keep important appointments, in times of emergency; to attend classes, support groups, job, grocery shop, interview or to just take sometime to relax.
