My son is 22 years old and has Down Syndrome. He is a joy to us and everyone he meets! He has several medical conditions and so needs very close care. He is a Type 1 diabetic and has a Dexcom, which needs to be monitored for insulin injections. We need someone who can be educated in reading his Blood Glucose levels and administering insulin, as well as be prepared for low blood sugars. He also has celiac disease and is on a gluten free diet. Right now he is unable to keep his food down and it looks like it may be because of a deviated artery in his heart. We are looking for someone who can keep him busy with activities here at our house and take him on excursions close by and at the same time monitor his food intake, give him insulin and watch for throwing up.
