Host Family Support
Mandurah

Would you like to help someone to provide new opportunities, connections and relationships?

 

We are looking for an enthusiastic couple or family to invite a person with support needs into their own home, networks and community to provide new and exciting opportunities with him.

 

Avivo aims to assist each person to achieve what is important to them and build on their strengths, abilities and interests. If you think you can do this by supporting someone in your own home and community, contact us!

  

Our costumer is looking for a Host Family to offer a short stay – Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon - once a month to provide his family a short break from their caring role.  He and his family are looking for a couple or a family that would love to include him in their weekend activities while providing him with the care he needs.

 

The customer is a 13 year old boy who loves swimming, walks in the park being around other children and has a great sense of adventure.  He loves being with others and also loves his own space so you would need to have a spare bedroom available for his needs.

 

Host Family support involves welcoming a person into your home and family through shared experiences and development of a relationship. We are looking for someone who is willing to build a friendship with this gentleman and his family, so he is in a caring environment that feels like a home away from home.

 

Previous experience in disabilities and epilepsy would be advantageous and the family have a wheelchair van that can be used to help him get around.

 

If this sounds like an opportunity that interests you or someone that you know, please contact Kate O’Neill on 1300 428 486 or kate.oneill@avivo.org.au

 

 

 

  

Making an appointment to this position is subject to a satisfactory National Police Clearance.

 

To be considered for this role you must attach an updated resume and a cover letter as one document.

 

Our Vision is:

‘People living as valued citizens, making their own decisions, developing their abilities and growing in their relationships.’
