Are you looking for a way to give back to your community? Do you enjoy working with people?
Would you enjoy guiding and supporting individuals with special needs, by assisting them to become more involved in their community?
Northumberland Family Respite Services assists families by screening independent service providers and providing a registry they can access. Families are looking for people to provide respite for their family members with special needs. If you are someone who is interested in assisting individuals to lead a fulfilling, healthy, well balanced life, this may be for you. You could be asked to provide support for the individual to learn life skills, social skills and independent living skills. You could even be asked to take a child to the park or do a craft with them so mom and dad could take a much needed break.
If this sounds like something you would enjoy doing please contact Don Schonhoffer at 905-885-6671 ext. 222 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. For screening purposes you should be prepared to provide a police check, including a vulnerable persons check and references.
