As our Supported Independence Technician you will monitor and assist individuals in our Supported Independence, Self-Determination, and Older Adult Services programs. You will need to come in ready to respond at any given time to monitor alarms that could be a potential emergency situation. Be prepared to work in a small office-type setting with a partner tech. Your abilities to stay focused, busy, and multitask will serve you well in this role.

Hours – Part-time hours are a minimum of 20-24 hours per week on a rotating schedule. The tech room runs 24/7 all year long.

Must have – A high school diploma or GED, and at least one-year experience caregiving, EMT, medic, or working with individuals in older adult services or with substance use disorders. You must be able to perform duties that require good hearing and verbal prompting.

Salary – Starting pay is $16.71/hr



How do you monitor individuals from the office setting? Each individual in the program has a monitor in their home (think baby monitor) that allows us to hear if they have an emergency or question for us. Some individuals may have a button to alert us, like the LifeAlert button.

What does a tech do in an emergency situation? When an emergency comes up we call appropriate authorities (EMS, Fire department, etc.) and then make our way to the scene to assist as we are able.
