Working for Families


Direct Respite Provider

Are you interested in flexible, meaningful work? Respite gives family caregivers a chance to renew their energy, and providing that short break can be a rewarding and satisfying work experience.

Family caregivers who use Wesway's Family Directed Respite Funding need to find someone to help them get a needed break. Direct Respite Providers meet those needs by providing short periods of respite care. Direct Respite Providers provide social and recreational opportunities for a child, adult or senior with an eligible disability or chronic health condition, by spending time with them in the family home or out in their community.

Direct Respite Providers work directly for the family they provide with respite, and are not employed by Wesway.
