Compassionate Life Coach/Roomate Needed!
Position: Live-in Life Coach/Mentor
(no experience necessary – we’ll train you)
Compensation: Approx $40k to $50k Annually
We’re looking for a live-in Life Skills Coach for a 26 year old woman. She is very independent but needs supports around daily living, transportation, making decisions, being safe, medical care, and budgeting. She is currently living in her own, two bedroom apartment and as her Life Skills Coach you would live with her and have your own room and share the common areas.
This could be set up as either a live in provider model, as mentioned above, or a staffed residence where several staff would share the responsibility. Provider stipend would be $50K plus, staff would be a negotiable hourly rate. Depending on the model of support, health care benefits may be included as well as other benefits such as a rent free scenario where a Life Skills Coach/companion would pay only utilities.
She would do best with a female provider. She’s working toward becoming more independent and hopes to live on her own in the future. She would like someone who can help make community connections and explore new activities and experiences. She also needs assistance in focusing on a healthy lifestyle around diet and exercise, meal planning and preparation, and grocery shopping.
