This Home and Community Based Service (HCBS) provides primary caregivers of people with disabilities relief by allowing them to hire an individual or individuals of their choice to provide care in their absence. People are awarded a number of hours per year through Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD). Respite providers become employees of CP of The North Country.
If you are interested in becoming a Respite Provider, you would need to be connected with a primary caregiver in order to be hired. There are caregivers that are in need of a respite provider in various locations. For more information please contact Sherri Hewitson at (315) 379-9667 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
