“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”  Winston Churchill

Shared Living is a residential option for people that would bring together an individual with disabilities with a Shared living provider or family who is willing to share their home with the individual, welcoming them as a contributing member of the family. Shared Living providers are expected to maintain a loving and supportive home, helping the individual thrive as an equal member of the household, as a healthy, social adult, and as an active member of the community. Individuals with disabilities — some of whom have previously lived in institutions or group home settings — greatly benefit from this community-living experience and the opportunity to become a true member of the family and a respected member of the household. 

Responsibilities:

Create meaningful experiences and engaging opportunities in your home and community, assist with daily hygiene and routines, transportation and assist with medical appointments.

Northeast Arc’s Shared Living team works to create a perfect match between an individual and a provider family, with the goal of ensuring that the needs of the individual are always met and that he or she is a valued member of the home.  A true match is one in which the individual has the opportunity to learn life skills, and to experience personal, social and emotional growth as a member of the family. Northeast provides case management, nursing support, ongoing support, problem-solving and respite to make sure that the needs of both the individual and the family are being met and that a strong, positive connection is established and maintained.

Virtually anyone can be a Shared Living provider, regardless of marital or parental status. Our goal is to make sure the fit between the individual and the caregiver is the right one based on lifestyle, activity level and a mutual respect and understanding.

Requirements:

  • High School diploma or GED
  • A home that is clean and safe and a spare room
  • Current driver’s license
  • Experience related to working with individuals with developmental disabilities

Benefits:

 
'To the world you may be one person but to one person you may be the world.'
