Home Providers

Sometimes individuals choose to live with a family, couple or supportive roommate. A number of people in the Medicine Hat area are home providers who are paid to provide accommodation and services. Some individuals live with home providers on a daily basis or they might only stay for a few days respite while their usual caregivers are away.

If you are interested in this type of work, you need to apply to CORE’s Manager of Service Coordination. When a situation becomes available, if you qualify, you will need to meet certain requirements:

  • CORE will inspect your home to ensure it is a good fit for the individual and is safe according to government and agency policies and standards.
  • The individual must have their own bedroom.
  • You will need to have current First Aid and CPR certification.
  • CORE will provide orientation and required training.
  • Direct experience is preferred but relevant experience will be considered.

Because a good match is the most important aspect of a support or respite home, it could take some time before a placement occurs.

If you are interested in becoming a home provider, contact Wendy Ebach, Manager of Service Coordination, 403.527.3302 ext 113 webach@coreassociation.ca

We appreciate your interest in working with CORE Association.  Please be advised that all applications are reviewed in terms of those best suited to vacancies.
