Host homes have been growing in popularity over the past few years as a way to provide care for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. There are many benefits to becoming a host home provider, including flexible hours, paid training, and the ability to work from home. In this blog post, we will review the purpose of host homes and discuss the benefits of providing this type of care.
Host homes are residential settings that provide 24-hour care and support to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Individuals within the host home model also have access to day time programming services including day programming and supported employment. The host home model is based on the idea that individuals with disabilities should have the opportunity to live in a family setting and be included in the community. Host homes are typically run by families or single adults who have been carefully screened and trained to provide quality care.
There are many benefits to becoming a host home provider. One of the biggest benefits is the flexible hours, as comes with support from respite providers and programming during the day. Host home providers sometimes choose to also maintain other positions while individuals are in programming during the day. Another benefit is paid training. Providers will receive compensation for attending required training sessions. This type of support allows providers to have a more flexible schedule and spend more time with their own families.
