Are you looking for a long-term role as part of a motivated and caring team that celebrates success and forges true connections? If so, please consider this opportunity - Mahler Private Staffing has a client who would like to hire a warm, kind, nurturing, and professional Special Needs Caregiver to work alongside a care team in providing support and companionship to a young semi-verbal autistic woman who lives in her own home in Easton, CT.

Qualifications: This opportunity is ideal for someone with experience working with adolescents and young adults with special needs - interested candidates with a background in special education or personal caregiving are invited to apply.

Some weeks during slower periods will be 30 to 35 hours per week, while busier periods of travel require up to 50 hours. You must be able to stay overnight two nights each week. Flexibility is key.

Earn between $75,000 and $90,000 a year, depending on experience and qualifications, with benefits that include overtime pay, assistance with health insurance, annual bonus potential, and a 401(k) retirement plan.
