Caregiver / Shared Living Provider
Nonotuck Resource Associates is a state-wide agency that has provided Shared Living since 1991 to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities; as well as adults with acquired brain injuries and elders. Shared living is a 24-hour community-based residential service. We support and assist people who wish to remain living in the community and neighborhoods of their choosing.
The caregiver(s) helps the person with their daily activities: they assist them to maintain their health and wellness, promote and model a safe and meaningful lifestyle and encourage participation in the community.
Caregivers receive a generous, tax-exempt stipend, monthly in-home visits from Nonotuck staff, clinical and nursing supports, extensive training and certifications, as well as 24-hour emergency on call support and consultation.
