We are looking for someone to care for Kristen, our 22-year-old daughter, approximately 20-25 hours a week. We live in Lyme. Kristen has a genetic abnormality (not a known condition) . She is mostly nonverbal but communicates with signs, some gestures and an tablet. She functions cognitively at about a 3-year-old level. She is really happy and outgoing. She loves horses and dogs, and loves to be out in the community, shopping, going to parks, restaurants, hiking, festivals, fairs or just riding in the car. She attends a day program Monday through Friday until 3:30 where she works at both a Big Y restocking items and at an employee cafeteria at a casino cleaning tables with a job coach.
We are looking for a caregiver who can watch her in our home as well as take her out into the community for various outings.
