We are looking for a loving, fun, dependable (and vaccinated) caregiver to join our family.
We have three children ages 13, 7 and 5. Our oldest son has a rare genetic syndrome. He is in a wheelchair, is fed by a g tube and uses a speaking device. He is the love of our lives!
Our other two children are a typical 7 and 5 year boy and girl.
The job is a little of everything. Our kids are in a hybrid program where they are part time in school and part-time homeschool. Over 60 percent of the job would be taking care of our oldest son, including feeding, changing, communicating and helping with school work and other therapy goals. It would also include taking our son to his various therapies, getting him in his therapy pool and on his special bike.
The other 30 percent of the job would be helping the younger children with schoolwork, engaging them in play and driving to their various activities.
The final 10 percent is helping with basic household chores - helping load the dishwasher, throw in a load of laundry and help put some groceries away.
The job would include some travel to Florida.
We follow an attachment parenting/conscious parenting style and love to be outside and engaged with our kids reading and playing games.
We have had some really special caregivers over the years - most of whom are still like family to us. We are hoping to find someone who is wanting to partner with us over several years, as our kids move through their elementary/high school years.
We look so forward to talking and meeting with you!
