Shared Living Provider
Open Your Heart, Open Your Home/Caregiving with Love
Nonotuck Resources Associates (www.nonotuck.com) is a community-based agency that has been providing residential services since 1972 to people with intellectual disabilities and acquired brain injuries. We support people who need assistance to remain living in a home setting. The individual and shared living provider share a home; the shared living provider must have an extra bedroom.
SHARED LIVING PROVIDER NEEDED
Nonotuck is seeking single people, couples and families who are interested in living with and sharing their life with an intellectually or physically disabled person. We are currently searching for shared living providers in the Southbridge area.
Beyond providing care, the shared living provider will develop a meaningful relationship with the person they are sharing their home with. She/he/they will be a roommate and a friend, spending time together, sharing activities, and enjoying a lively and engaged life. We consider this to be a long-term commitment.
The duties of the shared living provider will include but not be limited to building on and maintaining independence by being able to assist in activities of daily living (ADLs) such as participation in regular household routines, providing companionship and going out on community activities/outings. Care Providers would be responsible for helping with grocery shopping, cooking, housekeeping, laundry, routine budget management, medication management, and medical appointments.
When searching for shared living providers we will consider applicants who live in single family homes or apartments (with an extra bedroom) or are willing to move and who are single, a couple, families, people with children, with pets, and people with or without experience.
