How to become a Respite Provider

How to become a Respite Provider

A respite provider has a genuine interest in people and wants to offer respite care to families or individuals with developmental disabilities. By becoming a provider through Northumberland Family Respite Services, our staff can connect you with families who are looking to hire/contract a respite worker. We are always available to providers for guidance, emergencies and assistance prior to, during and after visits with their new family member.

Some of the screening requirements include:
-a current Police Check/Vulnerable Persons Sector
-a Children’s Aid Society Report
-Vaccination record

For questions about becoming a provider or to begin the process, the first step is to contact staff by phone or by email.
