Adult Respite Aide
Thresholds, Inc., a local non-profit organization, is dedicated to the care, skill teaching, and guidance for people who are challenged with intellectual, developmental and physical disabilities. Our support for the community is dependent on the compassion of our respite care staff. At Thresholds you are able to make a difference in the residents’ lives every day!
We are now hiring part time staff to provide support to individuals who live at home to provide respite to the families. Respite Aide Staff provide support to adults that have intellectual and developmental disabilities living with their families.

- Assisting with personal care and hygiene
- Assisting medication administration
- Monitoring health and ensuring safety
- Attending to medical needs
- Supporting involvement in community and in-home activities, teaching and training to increase independence
