Navigating the world of respite care can be difficult for families of individuals living with disabilities. With finances already stretched thin, limited hours available for dealing with the administrative tasks related to respite care, and the critical responsibility of seeking respite workers to take care of their loved one, finding and accessing qualified, trusted, and available help is hard.
During a recent forum with families just like yours, we heard the same message over and over again: It’s difficult to find qualified and available disability service providers, who are willing to work for the wages being offered through government funding. You want to hire the best help, you have access to funding and approval to hire respite care, but you are still finding it challenging to secure consistent help. You are often left to chase after word-of-mouth recommendations, post ‘help wanted’ ads on social media networks, rely on family members to step up where possible and as a last result, or hire less-than-ideal candidates.
We understand your struggles with the process of connecting with qualified caregivers in your community. It’s emotionally taxing for you and your family, and it requires a huge investment of time, finances and energy; it’s like a full-time job. And when you can’t find assistance for a few hours a week from disability service providers you can trust, the stress takes a toll on your family and can lead to burnout or breakdowns.
