Job Summary

Open Your Heart, Open Your Home/Caregiving with Love Nonotuck Resources Associates (www.nonotuck.com) is a community-based agency that provides residential services since 1972 to people with intellectual disabilities. Believing in the transformative power of caring for a person in a home-setting, we support individuals through matching them with caring providers who open their hearts and homes to our members as Shared Living Providers (SLPs). SLPs need to provide a flexible and supportive environment where the individual they are supporting will feel safe and secure.

Responsibilities will include, but not be limited to: planning and sharing meals together each day, going to appointments and participating in community and social activities. The SLP may also need to provide assistance, supervision and teaching in areas such as bathing, dressing, personal hygiene and budgeting. In addition, there may be a need to offer emotional and behavioral supports.

Nonotuck is currently in search of a caregiver in North/Central Berkshire County to share their life with a young man in his 30s.  The ideal person would be a man or a couple who are active in their community and would be open to introducing this person to new experiences.  A quiet home with older children is preferred; and it is important that the available bedroom and bathroom are located on the first floor as a walker is utilized for support with ambulation. 

The following resources will be available:

  • Generous stipend
  • 24- Hour emergency on-call assistance
  • Monthly in-home visits from a Care Manager
  • Access to clinicians for additional support
  • Training on home safety skills, medication management, and First Aid/CPR
  • Support of a nearby and loving family to help
