Become a Host Family

HomeShare - Become a Home ProviderOur Elder Family Care and Kinship Care host families (“provider families”) are special people! You know who you are. You can empathize with folks who are aging and losing the ability to live completely on their own.

You also have or are willing to learn the skills it takes to lend the kind of assistance these seniors need, and you’re generous enough to welcome someone into your family.

As a host family, you’ll be compensated for sharing your home and providing services as a caregiver. There’s no experience required and we’ll provide the training necessary for you to become a Personal Care Service Provider. We look for people who truly value the experience of making all the difference in the world to a┬ásenior who moves into their┬áhome.
