The Private Worker Database is a listing of qualified, experienced workers that individuals and families may choose to hire. Many workers on our database are students or recent graduates who join respiteservices.com to gain valuable work experience. Private Support Workers vary in experience, skill sets, and availability, and should not be considered trained therapists. Our database is updated regularly as we recruit new workers and families find successful matches.
Private Support Workers are not employees of respiteservices.com- families accessing the database employ the workers directly. All Private Support Workers have submitted an application outlining their experience, interests and availability, as well as a resume which are reviewed during an orientation session with respiteservices.com host site staff. Each worker also has a Police Reference Check conducted, provides up to 3 references, and has attended an orientation to respiteservices.com.
www.respiteservices.com does not make referrals of workers but rather facilitates connections between families and workers based on families’ needs and workers’ availability and skills. The family independently hires the worker. It is important to understand that a worker is not an employee of the www.respiteservices.com or of Communtiy Living North Grenville. They are considered self employed contract workers or employees of the hiring family, depending on the employment relationship the family has determined. It is up to the family to select, interview and hire the worker.
Our service works best when our information about families and also workers is current. Please contact your host site staff as soon as:
- you hire a worker or are hired
- your family needs change and you temporarily do NOT require a worker
- your schedule changes that you can temporarily NOT take any contracts with families
- you wish to be removed from the registry permanently
