Shared Living Provider
Nonotuck Resource Associates is an organization committed to providing authentic homes and a loving home life to the people we support. Through our Shared Living Program, we seek to match people who wish to create a home together with a spirit of mutuality and love.
We are currently looking for a kind and patient person to provide a wonderful shared living home for a young man in the Franklin/Hampshire county area. This gentleman has a gentle soul and a good sense of humor. He works during the day and loves being social. On the weekends he likes to have friends over, go to their houses, play video games, get food out, and go to the mall. He loves sports, especially basketball, and pets. When faced with frustration he needs a compassionate ear and a calming presence.
The role of the caregiver would be to provide supervision and oversight with daily routines, general health maintenance around attending medical appointments and medication oversight, and community integration. We are looking for a caregiver who has a good sense of humor, practices patience, is kind, non-judgmental, and outgoing. The ideal caregiver is someone who can be consistent, supportive, and help maintain friendships.
To qualify for this position, all applicants must be at least 18 years old, have a valid driver's license, own a car, and pass the CORI. Experience working with people with disabilities and with people in the mental health field would be helpful. A single bedroom must be available in your home.
Nonotuck Resource Associates provides a generous monthly stipend, relevant trainings, monthly visits and ongoing support by a Case Manager, as well as clinical supports.
