    Default In Home Care

    Hi we are soon to be parents of 3 under 2.5. I have been told we will qualify for ccr and ccb for in home care if we can find an approved service that has an available carer. I guess my question is does anyone use in home care and how do you find it. The children will be 6 months, 2 and 3 when I return to work. I work shift work so even if I work full time the kids are only in care/with a carer 15-20 hours a week the rest of the time my husband is home

    I also work shift work and use in home care for DS who is 15 months. It's a brilliant option for us. I love that it's one on one and he is in his home environment where he is comfortable. Also our career is happy to care for DS in a similar philosophical way to us like baby carrying, using homeopathy when needed things like that. Also she will sometimes put a Los of washing out or empty the dishwasher which is nice. The down side is that it does require a bit more organization. Just simple things like having the house clean nappies washed and folded. It stops me being lazy but I do have times when I think it would be easier to pack a bag, walk out the door and sort the house out latter.

    We don't do it formally (so unfortunately don't qualify for CCR or CCB) we just put the word out through the school DP works at and found an awesome lady. If you live in a capital city there are agencies you can go through that can provide careers that are registered care providers.

    Do those agencies use CCB etc? I need to find a more flexible and suitable option for us.

    I used it, it was a huge help, I had it when the twins came and my eldest was 3, and I had a history of PND. So it really was such a help. I had it when I as off work - so they were there with me. Helped in terms of doctors appointments and going shopping etc, not having to drag all the children around etc. Able to spend one on one time with each child etc.
