Experienced Babysitter Available Throughout The Week
I am an aunt to a beautiful 3yo little girl that lives with me, as well as a charming nephew that is only a 6 weeks old. I care for the two of them during the day as well as throughout the night whenever their parents are needing a break.
After a year and a half of working with a company that specializes in caring, in-home, for developmentally disabled adults, I had to step away due to needing a more reasonable work schedule.
This company required several certifications and extensive training.
-Re-directive training ( techniques to resolve behaviors )
-Recording information on paper
I am comfortable with administering medications and being in emergency situations such as seizures. Unfortunately, I have had my share of physically aggressive clients and have become accustomed to resolving issues and calming someone down in dangerous situations as well.
Familiarity in a kitchen, and working with a dietary plan is nothing strange for me. Neither are strict schedules, or daily routines - as many developmentally disabled adults are very dependent on their routines.
I have worked with many children of all ages, and up to three at one time. If references are needed, then I am more than willing to share their contact information. Granted, they are comfortable with me doing so.
Occasional over-night stays, are possible. Carpooling is also not an issue.
I prefer to read, color, and play hands-on with children. If the weather permits, I am always up for an adventure.
