Job Description

Would you like to work from home while making a difference in someone's life?

Do you have an extra room in your home?

Are you willing to provide care, a social and engaging life for a person with cognitive disabilities?

Our Shared Living program matches adults with developmental disabilities with welcoming individuals or families in their community for long term, in-home placement. The goal is to have the provider family integrate the individual into their home and community life. Riverside is there every step of the way to provide support to both the individual and the provider family.

We are committed to the philosophy that individuals with developmental disabilities thrive when they are able to live in a family home. Over time, these new family members develop meaningful relationships and learn to be independent and active members of their community. This model enriches the lives of all who are involved.

The individual will live in your home and need assistance with meal preparation, transportation to medical appointments and medication administration. Past experience is helpful, but not required, training and on-going support will be provided.

This position includes a tax-free daily stipend. The benefits from becoming a Provider also include having someone become an integral part of your family and community!

We have opportunities in the following locations: Boston, South Boston, Dorchester, and surrounding Boston towns - Quincy, Milton, Canton, Dedham, Needham, and Newton.

If you would like to learn more about becoming a Provider, please contact Holly Pyne ext. 3001 or Sandra Norlin ext. 3001 at 781-762-8539.
