How Do I Become A Host Home Provider?

Are you a caring and compassionate person?

Mountain Community Pathways is looking for dedicated, honest, and responsible individuals in the Foothills Area to provide care and support for adults with Developmental Disabilities in your home and as a part of your family.  We are located in Evergreen and are looking for host homes in the

Evergreen, Conifer, Idaho Springs, Kittredge and Morrison area.

 

What is a Host Home Provider?

Host Home Providers are independent contractors who provide

care in their own homes for the people they support.

Depending on individual abilities, Host Home Providers will assist with

personal care, meal planning and preparation, medical appointments,

community activities, safety skills, shopping and more. 

 

Some Host Home Providers may continue to work a full time or part time job

while their clients attend a day program or work in the community. 

Others stay home and care for their clients full time.

 

A successful Host Home Provider is caring, honest, mission-minded, patient,

a role model and teacher, has excellent listening and communication skills,

and will advocate for and encourage their client to reach their life goals.

 

 

 

What Skills Do I Need To Become A Host Home Provider?

The level of skills needed varies with each individual needing care. 

Some require basic supervision and assistance while others require wheelchair accessible homes.

Other situations may require more health care training for those with

medical needs (i.e. CNA's or LPN's) and some may require skills for behavioral needs.
