Description

Looking for a job that makes a difference in the lives of local families?

LSI currently seeks part-time (up to 29hrs/week) Respite Providers to provide respite care services in the Council Bluffs area. (Providing services in Pottawattamie County.) The purpose of respite care is to give the parent or primary caregiver a break from the daily responsibilities of caring for a child or adult with a disability.

Respite Providers have flexibility with the ability to make their own schedule around the family's needs. This position also has the potential to work from home after a probationary period. Current needs are for someone to be available primarily evenings, nights and some weekends with some availability in weekday. Flexible schedule working in your local community.

DUTIES

This position provides all care required to a child or adult with a disability while their parent or guardian is absent, while maintaining a safe and nurturing home-based environment. Special consideration may be given to applicants who are requested by the client or their family.

Respite Providers who have not been requested by a client or their family will be matched with clients who are approved for services. These Respite Providers will conduct respite care in the client's home, for a maximum of 16 hours per day.

The Respite Provider position will not have any guaranteed or set hours. There may be extended periods of time with no hours being worked. In many situations a respite provider may work a few hours one day and then not work again for several weeks or months. All hours worked by a Respite Provider are at the request of the family and respite is often provided in the afternoons, evening and on weekends.

QUALIFICATIONS

Qualified applicants will have a high school diploma or GED. Experience working with people with disabilities preferred.

This position requires a valid driver's license, auto insurance, a good driving record and the ability to pass an extensive background check including checks of the Dependent Adult and Child Abuse registries, Sex Offender registry and a criminal history check.

It's their life. It's your career.

Make a difference in both at LSI!
