We have an 8-month-old puppy and Maximus who is very energetic and loves attention and our son is very independent but we would like to see him come out of his shell a little bit more with his autism he is kind of anti-social but once he gets to know you he loves you unconditionally. Our ideal caregiver: I have a 13-year-old autistic son who needs someone with patience and understanding and who cares about what he needs. Additional needs include light housekeeping, meal prep, having a reliable car and being comfortable with pets. Looking for a caregiver for my 13-year-old son. Flexible start date. My schedule may vary.
