How You Can Work as a Respite Care Provider for Us
We’re currently accepting applications to join our team! One of the areas we provide caregiving for includes respite care geared specifically towards Autistic children.
Being a Caregiver (Respite Caregiver) Means
- Helping Family Caregivers – We provide respite care for autistic children; however, caregivers can also provide respite care for those who are unpaid caregivers. Our clients can request caregiving services for short periods; which qualifies it as more of a respite care than regularly scheduled daily caregiving services.
- Making a Difference – As a caregiver, you will provide a change of face to the client/patient. Offering help allows you to make a difference in a number of people’s lives; the full-time caregiver, the family, and most of all the person who needs assistance.
- Working at Regional Health Centers – We provide caring for children who have Autism; from one end of the spectrum to the other. You will work at our Regional Health Center location, which offers not only the resources you may need but a consistent atmosphere that will make your job a little easier as the child associates the location with positive and fun interactions.
- Striving for Social Function – We like to focus on the social interaction of the child and responses to their surroundings. We encourage positive reinforcement for good behaviors and responses to outside influences. Our goal is to have a child who can socially interact with others as well as possible.
- Continuing Education – We encourage that you continue to learn as you work for us. It’s always beneficial to learn more as a respite caregiver who works with Autistic children.
Why Work for Us?
We have high standards and want special qualities that make our caregivers stand out above the rest. We also offer some great reasons to join our team.
Do you have these qualities?
- Enjoy helping others
- Social Skills that make you someone people want to be around
- Like working with the children
- Can stay calm and focused in most any situation
- Self motivated (your reward is seeing the breakthrough with a child, the smile on the faces of the families you are helping, and finding new ways to address issues the child has)
- Understand the importance of being on time and focused on your job
- Thinking Outside the Box (because every child will be dealt with as an individual, you may be challenged to think outside of the box for solutions to working with different children)
