Manos Home Care has been providing in-home services for adults and children with developmental disabilities throughout the East Bay in cities such as Oakland, Berkeley, Richmond, Antioch, Walnut Creek, Livermore, Hayward, Union City and Fremont since 1989. Manos serves clients of the Regional Center of the East Bay in the Contra Costa and Alameda Counties.
We need respite, day care, independent living instructors, and personal assistance Direct Support Providers who are able to care for children and adults with special needs. Many of our clients are diagnosed with intellectual or developmental disabilities such as Autism, Down’s Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, and/or developmental delay.
Our Direct Service Providers (DSPs) primary job is to provide care in the client’s home and the surrounding community. This may include and is not limited to the following activities: bathing, light meal preparation, toileting, assisting with behavior programs, assisting with homework and language programs, and taking walks – as well as any other means of interacting with the client, such as playing board games, reading to each other, or simply conversing. Our DSPs are also responsible for cleaning up after activities or assisting the child/children or adult in the cleanup.
Our Independent Living Skills Instructors (ILS Instructors) work with clients to fulfill their goals and dreams of becoming independent. Following a client directed goal plan, ILS Instructors help clients learn to ride the bus, go shopping, manage their money, apply for jobs, find housing, and much more.
This type of job is best for caring, positive and patient individuals with a desire to work with children and adults with special needs.
