The Arc of Greater Plymouth is searching for a shared living provider(s) to share a home with an energetic gentleman in his early 40s who enjoys basketball, swimming, NASCAR racing, concerts and movies.
The individual enjoys participating in a large variety of recreational activities. He enjoys working outdoors, watching sporting events, cooking new recipes, going into the city and hopes to soon join a new gym. He likes being around people who are interested in sports. He also likes to spend time with his family and enjoys cats.
The shared living provider will receive an ample bi-monthly tax-exempt stipend with a generous provision for respite care. The Arc of Greater Plymouth will provide training, supervision, on-call support and professional resources. In exchange, the provider helps this man negotiate the activities of daily living, getting ready to go to a day program, transportation to day program, structures meaningful activities for him afternoons and weekends, assists him with shopping, and accompanies him to medical appointments. He also needs behavioral supports as well as assistance regulating stressful situations.
The ideal candidate(s) (a single person or young couple) will be energetic, cheerful, and interested in sharing an active and healthy life with this man. A background in social work, nursing, education or human services is beneficial but not necessary. A fondness and familiarity with Plymouth, and all it offers, is desirable.
