Become a Host Carer and make a difference
Home Sharing is a community-based service that provides both short breaks (respite) and full-time (shared living) placements to children and adults with a disability. These breaks take place in the Host Carer’s home. The scheme is voluntary; however, Host Carers are paid an allowance which is tax-free.
A Host Carer is an individual that has been recruited, assessed, trained and vetted by a HomeShare provider in the Mid-West region. This person is approved to have the personal qualities and skills to care for a person with a disability on a short-term or long-term basis.
Host Carers come from a wide variety of backgrounds and can be working, retired, with or without children, single or with a partner. Host Carers are fully vetted, assessed, trained and are carefully matched with each child or adult looking to avail of a short break.
It’s not a requirement to have experience working with people with disabilities. Personal qualities such as being warm and caring, having time and commitment, being reliable and motivated to care are what is required.
