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.

Betty and Grace

Betty and Grace have shared a home for several years. Betty is healthy and happy, living an abundant life. She enjoys going for walks and loves Grace’s cooking – especially the Kenyan dishes that she prepares. Creative pursuits keep her busy. Betty’s mother taught her how to embroider and she makes her own greeting cards. The two friends share a deep faith in God and are involved in their church communities. Grace says sharing your life with another is a commitment worth considering. Communitas provides excellent support and fellow Home Share Providers are a supportive community.
