Be a Family Caregiver

Get Paid to Care for Your Loved One!

Parents: You, another family member, or designee may be able to become a DDRC “Family Caregiver” and get paid for providing supports to your loved one. DDRC makes this possible by hiring you / a designee for this role, and DDRC is the approved employer. The person receiving services and families have the opportunity to determine their caregiver.

Family caregivers provide personal care services and daily living support. The services differ upon waiver (SLS /CES) but may include support with cooking, cleaning, shopping, meal planning and accessing the community.

This is a great option! Reach out to us today to get started!
