L’Arche Saskatoon relies on the commitment of caring, responsible individuals to provide supports to our community members with intellectual disabilities (our “core members”) in our homes and programs.
Live-in assistants and core members build relationships and create home together by sharing the regular tasks of daily life–tasks such as shopping, planning and cooking meals, cleaning, and doing laundry. Assistants provide core members with any personal supports that are needed, including help with bathing, personal care, attending medical appointments, and taking medications. The rhythm of life in our homes also includes frequent celebrations, prayer times, outings, and occasions for simply hanging out together.
No previous experience is necessary to become a live-in assistant, but those interested should have an openness to community life, a desire to build meaningful relationships with people who have disabilities, and a willingness to live and work alongside people who are different from you.
