Special needs caregiver needed in Argos. My husband and I are looking to go on a vacation this summer, and our 6-year-old son needs round the clock care/ supervision. To give you an idea of the kind of care he needs: He is nonverbal, has severe autism, and communicates his wants non verbally by showing you what he wants, or by using his tablet . He can use the toilet during the day but needs help with his bathroom routines, and he wears pull ups at night. This job also involves dropping him off at his ABA center in the mornings and picking him up in the afternoons Monday through Friday. You would have free time while he is at therapy, roughly from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. I would feel more comfortable if you could stay at our house with him as he does not sleep well in unfamiliar locations and our house is set up for his safety.
