Location: Hawkes Bay
Caregiver - Host family
CCS Disability Action is committed to including all people within our communities; we highly value diversity and promote difference. We are seeking like-minded people to open their homes as caregivers to support disabled people in the Hawkes Bay area.
We are looking for two families under Contract Board and one family for our Foster Care Contract. If you cannot have some one full time, however, you may be interested in helping families with respite care, please also show your interest and we can talk with you further.
Contract board is a permanent arrangement where it is expected the person supported will become very much a part of your and your family’s life, as well as being involved in activities outside of your home. The support for this is reimbursed at a daily rate and the person will pay a market rate for board as well.
CCS Disability Action builds our work around three core documents; the UN Convention of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, Te Tiriti o Waitangi and the NZ Disability Strategy. We work within a Human Rights framework and are an EEO employer meaning we make accommodation and openly encourage people with lived experience of disability to apply.
CCS Disability Action will:
- Work with you to establish the individual match that works best for you and your family.
- Ensure that all legal requirements are met.
- Provide you with training, practical support and ongoing information to ensure you are well equipped for the role.
- Coordinate any required disability related supports, modifications or medical support needed for a disabled person to thrive in their new environment.
If you are interested in welcoming a disabled adult into your home on a long-term basis under Contract Board; please email your letter of application and CV to:
