Job Description:

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



LSI currently seeks part-time (24-29 hrs/week) Respite Providers to provide respite care services in the Waterloo & surrounding Cedar Valley area (Black Hawk, Bremer &/or Grundy counties - typically no further than 30 minutes away). 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.



If you have experience working with children or adults that have a disability, and would like flexibility in scheduling your services, this job could fit your needs.



Hours may flex in accordance to the family's needs, some evenings and or weekend hours may be requested. Looking for applicants with good communication skills and a passion to serve families in need of a break from 24/7 care and supervision of their family member. This position requires good communication with the families to establish your schedule. Hours may include evenings, and one or two weekend days per month. This position also has the potential to work from home after a probationary period.



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 provide services in the client's home, community or potentially in their own home.



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, evenings 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.
