Home Sharing

Making a Difference in the life of an adult with developmental disability.

Home Sharing is a contracted service that provides adults with developmental disabilities the opportunity to live in the community. People within a home not only share their home but also each other’s lives. When a decision is made by someone receiving support to choose the Home Sharing program, AiMHi’s role is to seek out the best possible Home Sharing Provider.  We work with home sharing applicants and the person receiving support to ensure a good match.

As a Home Sharing Provider, you would meet the needs of a person with a developmental disability and celebrate their abilities with the belief that each person has their own strengths, needs and potential.  Your role would be to support the person to maximize their potential, realize their dreams, and help them live a satisfying life that is inclusive of their family, friends and community.   You would be responsible for the safety, support and general well-being of the person living with you. Home Sharing may include assistance in self-care, relationship-building, life skills, meal preparation and personal care, as well as the use of community resources, activities and services.

Contractors receive a fee for service, additional funds to be used for respite, and a contribution from the person supported to the monthly expenses of the home. If you would like to learn more about becoming a Home Sharing contractor, contact our Home Sharing Managers at AiMHi, 250-564-6408 or email home.sharing@aimhi.ca.

  • Home Sharing Providers in Prince George and Quesnel who would like to make a difference in the life of an adult and create a lasting relationship by sharing your home and your life.
  • Pre-requisites; 19 years of age or older, Class 5 Driver’s License

“I live a good life in Home Sharing. I get out and about almost every day. One of the highlights is I lost a lot of weight and became a lot healthier since I moved in. I started exercising and watched what I ate and my home share helped me stay on track. I like to be able travel with my Home Share family. I also like being able to take Carefree to go to church or my group. Sometimes my home share drives me to places, too.
