- Providing care and assistance to adults in care with the home and play parts of live/work/play
- Planning, developing, implementing and evaluating how individualized support are provided for clients
The Supported Living Team Member ensures the consistent application of a philosophy that supports the independence of each client by not doing for them but doing with them. Each client is encouraged to participate in all facets of daily life to the extent that they are able.
The Supported Living Team Member requires experience, knowledge and skills ideally achieved through a diploma in a relevant field combined with at least one year of relevant experience. Background in serving people with disabilities is an asset. Equivalencies will be considered.
The position requires an understanding of Inclusion NWT’s mission and an ability to communicate and advocate an inspired vision of inclusion in all parts of an individual’s life.
