Our little 14-month-old, H, has very complex needs. She has never been cared for without Mom or Dad, even while in the NICU or PICU.
We are very nervous & hesitant to hire an ongoing respite caregiver. H is really friendly with new people though, & lots of little toddler fun. She is cruising, climbing, singing and playing... Looking for someone awesome enough to convince us to take a break - available for a Saturday early evening dinner date here & there at first, could turn into more later on.
Our ideal caregiver: We are looking specifically for someone with a medical / medical special needs background for occasional respite help with our medically fragile 1-year-old daughter. Non-smoker, HEALTHY (who will cancel even with the slightest allergy runny nose) is an absolute must. Experience with feeding tubes is greatly preferred.
Additional needs include meal prep, having a reliable car, being comfortable with pets and a non-smoker. Looking for a caregiver for my 1-year-old daughter. Flexible start date. My schedule may vary.
