BECOMING A HOST HOME PROVIDER

IMG_2103.jpeg

Host Home Providers open up their own home to provide care and supports for an individual with developmental disabilities. More than that, though, they open up their heart to accept this person as a member of their family. Just as they would with any other family member, they assist with personal care, meal planning and preparation, medical appointments, community activities, safety skills, shopping, and more. With the assistant of respite staff, the use of day programs, or if the individual holds a job in the community, the host may continue to work a full-time or part-time job. Others stay home and care for their clients full-time since they earn a livable income. A successful host is caring, compassionate, and an excellent role model who demonstrates communication skills, advocacy for their individual, and who offers encouragement in every facet of their life.
