Understanding the Role of Parent Provider

A parent provider is typically a family member or guardian who assumes the responsibility of caring for a loved one with developmental disabilities within the comfort of their own home. This arrangement allows individuals to receive the care they need while remaining in a familiar and supportive environment.

Why Become a Parent Provider?

Becoming a parent provider offers numerous benefits for both the caregiver and the care recipient. Providers have the opportunity to witness their children achieve various milestones, both academically and emotionally, and experience personal growth along the way. Being a part of this development journey can be incredibly rewarding.
