Respite Care Specialist

Position Summary

One Source-Empowering Caregivers trained Respite Care Specialists provide companion care. They do not provide medical care. They are, however, trained on a wide range of issues that they may encounter during their visiting experiences. OSEC responds to requests from in-home caregivers who need time off from caregiving to take care of their own needs for socialization, medical appointments, and other personal quality time. A trained volunteer Respite Care Specialist sets up an appointment to serve 2-4 hours per week in the home of the caregiver to provide respite for the caregiver and companionship to the person they care for. Please “Express Interest” in this opportunity and we’ll be in touch or call the One Source-Empowering Caregivers office at 530-205-9514 for more information.
