LifeStream Seeking Caregivers for Shared Living Program
With so many people forced to change their livelihood due to remote learning, the need to work from home or having to leave their jobs, Lifestream has a wonderful opportunity for those willing to open their homes and become part of a supportive team while making a difference in someone’s life – all from the comfort of their own homes!
LifeStream is seeking compassionate and caring people to share their home to someone in need and become a caregiver for an adult with developmental disabilities. Caregivers provide support, companionship and guidance to an individual living in the caregiver’s home. In exchange, caregivers receive comprehensive resources and access to excellent support (24 hours a day/7 days a week if needed) including hands-on 1:1 training from an assigned Registered Nurse and case manager. In addition, caregivers receive a generous tax-free daily stipend as well as room and board.
Caregivers must be 18 years of age, have a valid driver’s license, use of a personal vehicle, an acceptable CORI, pass a national fingerprint background check and a negative drug screen.
“The Shared Living program is a great opportunity for people working from home and those who may have left the workforce and are in need of additional income,” said Lori Kydd, LifeStream’s Vice President, Operations. “We currently support many people in homes throughout the greater Fall River and New Bedford area. Our caregivers have opened their homes and their hearts to assist people in living a fulfilled life.”
