PARENTS TEMPORARILY BECOMING CARE WORKERS during COVID-19 emergency
In order to make sure that families have the support they need during the Covid-19 emergency, DDD will temporarily allow family members who qualify, to become a Direct Care Worker (DCW) and provide paid care to DDD members who are children. This means that a Parent, Step Parent, or other legally responsible person (“parent”) may temporarily be hired by a Qualified Vendor Agency (QVA) to be a Direct Care Worker (DCW) for their child. Contact your child’s DDD Support Coordinator.
