Open Your Home

Open Your Home

A contracted caregiver arrangement gives you an opportunity to enrich your life by welcoming someone with a disability into your home and family. Throughout the relationship, Communitas is there to support both caregivers and the person receiving support, ensuring a good match of personalities and a safe living environment.

Home Share

In a Home Share arrangement, the caregiver provides long-term support for the person with a disability, including food, lodging, and recreation, depending on needs. We provide this service in the Fraser Valley and on North Vancouver Island.

Adult Respite

In an Adult Respite arrangement, the caregiver provides temporary support to an adult living with disabilities. Respite care benefits all members of a caregiving family by allowing them to broaden their social networks and develop meaningful relationships. The caregiver receives a stipend for the support they provide. Adult Respite is available in the Fraser Valley.

Children’s Respite

In a Children’s Respite arrangement, the caregiver provides temporary support to a child or youth living with a disability while the primary caregiver has an opportunity to rest. The caregiver receives a stipend for the support they provide. Children’s Respite is available in the Fraser Valley.

Victor and Washington

Washington enjoys listening to music, going for walks and playing games. He’s studying to be a nurse and enjoys being with people. He lives in a suite with an extra bedroom. Victor also enjoys music and going for walks and while he enjoys being with people he also needs his own space. Because he lives with autism, Victor needs help with day to day tasks. After meeting each other and seeing that they had some things in common, Victor moved in with Washington. Now they share meals, play games and go for walks with each other. They have become good friends.

A Home Share provider is sought in the Fraser Valley for a very friendly man.

A  Home Share provider is needed in Abbotsford or surrounding areas (Mission, Aldergrove, Langley,or Chilliwack) for a very friendly man. He loves to watch sports on TV and go to the occasional game with his family or caregiver. While he enjoys chatting with others, he also values opportunities to be in his own space. On some weekends, he visits his parents or other family members. He uses a walker, so a home with no stairs (or very limited stairs) would be ideal.
