Care Provider Needed for Man with Disabilities

Pathlight is currently seeking a person or couple in the Northampton/Amherst area to share their home with “D.”, an extremely personable man in his late 30’s. Though he can be shy at first, once D. opens up his charisma really shines. Known by all for his pleasant and engaging personality, D. is also well-liked at work because of his strong worth ethic and reliable attendance record. When he’s not being an amazing coworker, he enjoys biking, playing videogames, and meeting friends at his favorite nearby hangout spot, The Quarters.

D. is able to spend time alone at home and in the community and is okay with navigating the bus lines by himself. Because maintaining independence is a big thing for him, homes located near a bus stop are preferred. Ideal candidates would have skills in working with this population (though not required), be able to establish clear and consistent routines, set reasonable limits, and provide structure. Care providers will also need to support D. with staying organized and managing meals. An open heart, reliability, maturity, and flexibility are required.
