Find a Caregiver
Boone County Family Resources created the Caregiver Directory to make it easier for family members to connect with potential caregivers.
Passwords to view the database are given only to those with eligible family members. Please contact your Support Coordinator to determine if your loved one is eligible and to obtain a password.
Family members interested in screening applicants may use the Family Care Safety Registry (FCSR) to look into a potential candidate’s background. Caregivers are not required to register with the FCSR in order to be listed in the Caregiver Directory, but families may require registration as a condition of employment.
For more information about Home Based Support Services, using the Caregiver Directory, or to schedule an orientation with the caregiver you have hired, please contact the Self-Directed Services Coordinator at HBSS@bcfr.org or 573-874-1995 ext. 145.

Caregivers Hired by Families
Our Home-based Support Services (HBSS) program reimburses families for wages they pay household employees to care for loved ones with a developmental disability. Caregivers may assist in a broad range of activities, often including everyday tasks like dressing, eating and exercising, recreation, and special medical, learning or behavioral support. Specific tasks are determined by the family members who direct all aspects of care, including hiring, training, scheduling and supervising caregivers. Caregiving positions are usually part-time with flexible hours.
Caregivers whose wages are reimbursed through Boone County Family Resources are not employed by Boone County Family Resources; they are employed directly by the families they work for.
Caregivers must be over 18 years old and not eligible for reimbursement if they:
- Are an immediate family member of the person receiving services
- Receive HBSS for their own family member
- Provide other services simultaneously
- Work for BCFR in any capacity
If you are interested in being contacted by family members participating in the HBSS program, please consider listing your information in the Caregiver Directory.
