Respite Care Provider
Give families a break by spending time with a child/youth with extra support needs, and provide opportunities for recreation, and building socials skills & friendships!
Successful applicants will gain access to Cridge Respite Connect - a website where we post job ads for families looking to hire, and profiles for respite care providers looking for work. Respite care providers will have the opportunity to apply directly to families, or be invited to apply by families.
While you will not be employed by The Cridge, you will gain access to a portal that contains job ads by families in the community looking to hire. You will be self-employed, work independently, and have the opportunity to create your own schedule. The wage is negotiated with the individual family as it is contingent on the circumstances and context of the care, but the typical wage is $15 an hour (commensurate with skills and experience).
The Cridge Respite Service accepts resumes on a rolling basis. We look for passionate, experienced, and knowledgeable care providers. Applicants should have experience working with children with various abilities in a variety of settings. Current First Aid/CPR C and a clean criminal record check with vulnerable sector will be required.
