Are you looking for a meaningful opportunity in your own home? Become a Host Home / Shared Living provider with Mosaic at HomeĀ®! Average annual income opportunities of $47,000 (federally tax-free) plus monthly rent/household expenses. Must reside in the state of Kansas due to state funding and have a residential property.

For nearly 40 years, Mosaic has provided improved quality of life, greater stability, and increased community access for people with disabilities through our shared living service, which also offers a satisfying career option for home providers.

Open your Heart and your home in the Garden City, KS community. We have a female client that is seeking a provider to share their home with her to help her live her best life! She enjoys going shopping, getting her hair and nails done, and enjoys going to work. We are looking for a Shared Living Provider that will support her in becoming more independent. She prefers a home that is smoke-free and with no cats but is open to other animals. She would do great living in a home with children.

As an Independent Contractor, your primary responsibility is to maintain a safe and healthy home environment for the individual supported.

Caring for individuals is more than just helping people with their daily activities. It is assisting in cultivating life skills and fostering independence. You will be sharing your home with an individual, not just having someone live in a room in your home. Sharing your home means participating in activities, sharing chores and matching interests and lifestyles.

An independent Contractor (IC) will welcome an individual with a disability to reside in their home. IC's support the individual by providing a safe and nurturing home environment to foster personal growth and independence. Duties vary for each individual from minimal support (i.e., budgeting, medication, transportation, activities of daily living or ADL's) to full support (i.e., dressing, toileting, feeding, positive behavioral support, etc.). As an Independent Contractor, our organization will assist you with identifying an individual that is welcomed into your home and best fits your family dynamic.

Responsibilities include:

  • Provide support for tasks such as cooking, cleaning, laundry, budgeting, decision making, etc.
  • Skill acquisition
  • Medication administration
  • Medical appointments
  • Support with overall health and well-being
  • Daily documentation via web-based case management application (THERAP)
  • Provide fun and leisure experiences to the individual by providing opportunities of community inclusion, integration and socialization
  • Compliance with all state/agency policy and procedures
  • Communicate effectively with team members as needed
  • Support physical needs of individual served
  • Provide transportation
Possible responsibilities depending on your preference:
  • Assistance with bathing, toileting, feeding, behavioral support, etc.
  • Provide support for medical protocols, such as seizure, fall, feeding tube, etc.
  • Care for someone with complex physical/medical needs (i.e., hearing impaired, vision impaired, non-ambulatory, etc.)
  • Potential support of behavioral issues.
