Bethesda’s Home Share service is a family-style arrangement where a family or a single person cares for one or two adults with intellectual disabilities in their home. Each Home Share strives to foster an individual’s independence and quality of life, while recognizing the need for interdependence and support. In providing room, board and personal support for the individual(s), the care provider would receive a contract that includes guidelines of care, reporting requirements as well as remuneration. Payment for services is based on a “Level” funding formula and is determined by the amount of support that an individual requires. Additionally, each Home Share would receive respite care funds to allow the care giver regular breaks in providing support and each Home Share would receive ongoing support from the agency.

 

Prospective caregivers should give thoughtful consideration and seek out information before assuming the role of professional caregiver. Providing 24-hour care to another person requires an individual with unique characteristics. It is not a role that everyone can successfully assume. For those who are suited, Home Share becomes a lifestyle choice that can be extremely rewarding. A compatible placement enriches their lives and the lives of their family members. Family members need to decide what supports they would need, and what adjustments would be required. Your family should also recognize its strengths and its limitations. Bethesda will help to determine the best compatible individual with your family.

 

Standard requirements for all Home Share Contractors of Bethesda include:

 

•Canadian or landed immigrant status

•Acceptance of Bethesda's Statement of Faith & Community Good Neighbour Focus

•Acceptance of Bethesda's Christian Lifestyle Focus

•Acceptance of Bethesda's Ethical Standards

•Ability to meet all elements of the Role Description or of the Contract
