SERVICES FOR THE DEVELOPMENTALLY DISABLED
Our in-home respite program is designed to provide families with experienced caregivers to provide capable, temporary relief from the ongoing responsibility of caring for a person with developmental disabilities.
Cambrian's respite caregivers are well trained and duly experienced. Each caregiver is required to have the following, at a minimum:
- Verifiable work references
- Previous caregiving experience
- Clear all criminal background checks
- Personality survey
- Completion of our twenty (20) hour respite training course
- CPR/First Aid Certification
All caregivers are bonded and insured under company liability insurance. Cambrian is responsible for all state and federal taxes.
When in partnership with the local Regional Centers, the program provides a monthly authorization of hours for respite in the home.
Scheduling is done to meet the family and client’s needs. These needs may include personal care, fun play times/leisure activities, behavior management and other diagnosis specific activities. Cambrian caregivers wear photo ID tags for your security and their proper identification.
Many of our caregivers are bi-lingual or multi-lingual. By matching client and caregiver culturally, a bond of trust develops which helps the client and family communicate with ease.
Cambrian also has a unique “tell a friend” program that may suit your needs. Be sure to ask when you call for services.
This important department makes client contacts by phone and in-person. Their mission is to ensure your satisfaction with all of our services. Please make sure you know your Customer Service Coordinator and the staff in the Quality Assurance department!
