Respite Care Providers are primarily responsible for providing care, guidance and mentoring to children, youth or adults with developmental disabilities. Through Rowell Family Empowerment of Northern California, respite care allows the family and/or primary caregivers to receive an occasional break of a few hours to as much as an overnight or two. All Respite care providers are classified as Home Health Care Providers. Families typically give a minimum of 48 hours advanced notice when scheduling services.
We are looking for loving people with some experience caring for those with a diagnosis, or at least a desire to learn about it. Perhaps a family member or one with a background in child development or special education would enjoy this opportunity. Family members of individuals with special needs who have an interest are welcome to apply. Individuals interested in being a part of our respite program will receive a training that includes Mandated Reporting, Seizure Protocol, Proper Lifting Techniques, CPR certification, and First Aid certification. CPR and First Aid are a must to provide the best safety to our families. Ongoing training and support provided as needed.
