Needed Special Needs Caregiver - I am looking for someone with e...

Part Time $17 – 22/hr Starts 12/05 Arlington, VA
I am looking for someone with experience to work with my daughter who has special needs and who needs special care. This person must be caring and loving and willing to help her with all activities of daily living (ADLs). I am looking for someone to work from Noon until 8:00 pm on Sundays. My daughter has cerebral palsy and an intellectual disability. She is quite small for her age (32), and functions as a young child. She cannot walk independently, but she can walk in a walker if someone helps her. She cannot talk, but she can communicate with body language as you get to know her, and she can make choices with her iPad if someone helps her. She needs hand-over-hand help to use her hands functionally. She needs to be fed, toileted (and diapered), showered, and entertained. She needs a very good friend who will take her to parks, restaurants, and places of entertainment so she can enjoy the same activities, other young women, her age enjoys. The person who works with her can take her out and about in her wheelchair-accessible van. This is a big job, but you will have all the training and support necessary to make certain you are comfortable working with my daughter. She needs a lot of care and a lot of love, and she gives a lot of love in return. The person who works with my daughter must be fully vaccinated for Covid. This person must have a valid driver’s license and their own transportation (we live in the North Arlington/McLean area). This person must be willing to commit to working for us for at least one year. Salary is negotiable and will be commensurate with experience. My daughter needs a best friend she can depend on for the best of care. If you are a patient and caring person and are interested in talking to me about this position, please contact me. I look forward to hearing from you! Maureen H.
