Respite Care Referral Program
Annapolis, MD (January 19, 2017) - The Anne Arundel County's Respite Care Referral Program is recruiting caring individuals to train as Companion-Caregivers and Home Health Aides for the county's growing population of seniors and adults with disabilities. Clients and families are often looking for assistance with meal preparation, shopping, transportation to appointments, as well as companionship.
Respite Care workers are self-employed contractors who make their own schedule, working as much or as little as desired. Prior to placement on the registry, Companion-Caregivers will be required to complete a three (3) day training at the Department of Aging & Disabilities. Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA) will complete a one (1) day training to join the registry as a Home Health Aide.
Applications to join the registry can be downloaded from the Department's website at www.aacounty.org/departments/aging-and-disabilities or by calling 410-222-4377.
