Sharing Lives, Fulfilling Dreams
Seven Hills Shared Living Providers in Massachusetts and Rhode Island are compassionate caregivers who welcome adults with developmental disabilities into their homes and lives. Shared Living arrangements provide care in a manner that maximizes the individual’s dignity and quality of life and most closely replicate a private home experience. Providers are professionally trained and well matched with the individual in their care to ensure stability, safety, health, and welfare, and provide personal care, homemaker services, meals, transportation, and socialization. Seven Hills provides training for the caregiver, nursing services as authorized, and develops individual safety plans. The Provider receives professional supports and services to help them provide optimum care, and also receives a tax-free stipend.
