Our home sharing program provides a residential option for adults who prefer a smaller or more family-based environment. Services are provided by contracted caregivers, sometimes called roommates. They share living space and responsibilities around the home and provide whatever level of support is appropriate to the individual’s needs. This may include recreational support, community participation, and personal life and home skill development.
Home sharing focuses on optimizing independence, self-determination and choice, while ensuring safety. We recruit and screen community members who provide services under contract to CCS. We work with both individuals and caregivers to find the best possible match, and provide the training and support to make it work. We promote long-lasting relationships between individuals and caregivers, and the development of a strong network of support that includes the individual’s family, the caregivers’ family and the neighborhood.
We honor the different values and backgrounds of individuals and families when matching individuals with caregivers, and while providing residential support.
Home sharing is provided in individual homes in the Cowichan Valley. Support is provided up to 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, depending on the needs of the individual and the particular support model. The home sharing coordinator’s office is located at the CCS building on Clements Street in Duncan, BC.
