Looking for female caregivers to provide in-home care for our 21-year-old son with Down Syndrome. He's 4'5"tall, 75 lbs., and looks much younger than he really is. He enjoys listening to his CDs, watching his videos, and riding on his special needs stroller around the neighborhood. He simply loves when someone sings children's songs to him! He can walk short distances around the house but needs help going up and down the stairs. He's non-verbal and is learning to communicate using picture cards and sign language. His care includes G-tube feedings, oral feedings (baby food), full assistance with toileting, diapers, bathing, tooth brushing, and dressing. In return, he'll give hugs and smiles! Minimum requirement: be 18+ with a high school diploma or GED. College students are preferred. Training provided.
