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.
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.
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.
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 Abbotsford and by referral from the Ministry of Children and Family Development.
