Overnight Care

Night supervision services allow families or a person to hire a support worker to help with overnight assistance and supervision in their own home.

Who is eligible for this service?

  • The person must live in their own home.
  • The person has been assessed and needs overnight assistance in one of the following areas:
    • Fulfillment of the individual’s transition plans and positive support programming.
    • Strengthening skill development supports such as Individuated home supports.
    • Assistance with daily living activities.

PossAbilities is a 245D licensed provider. We function as the employer for the support worker that is hired by providing the necessary training and payroll.


PossAbilities does not provide support staff for night supervision services. Here are some tips for finding a support worker:

  • You can find someone you know.
    • Inform your friends, neighbors, co-workers, school teachers, etc. that you are looking for a support worker.
  • You can find someone on social media.
    • Post on your personal Facebook page or community Facebook page that you are looking for a support worker. Many communities also have job pages on Facebook where you can list your job.
  • Post Flyers
    • Create a “hiring flyer” and hang it up at your local community center, school district, grocery store, gas station, restaurant, or other facilities in town that are frequently trafficked.
  • Creating a job posting with PossAbilities
    • Fill out the Job Posting Agreement form provided by PossAbilities. You can request the Job Posting Agreement Form from our Individualized Home Supports and Respite Manager. By filling out this form with the required details, PossAbilities can help you look for support workers.

Tips for Recruiting a Support Worker:

  • Be specific about what you are looking for in a support worker, including the schedule of hours needed, type of job tasks, age requirements, experience requirements, and location of the job. Will this be a permanent or temporary job? The more details you provide, the more likely it is that you will find the right candidate to work with you.
  • Once you have a candidate(s), you will want to interview them to ensure they are the correct fit for your needs. You may also want to set a time to have them interact with the individual they will be working with.
  • PossAbilities is here to help coach and assist you through the process as needed.
