We need a home/community caregiver to help our son C with personal care, meals, recreation, socialization & communication. Daily community trips require car/willingness to drive locally. C takes time to trust, but forms deep loving relationships. He enjoys interacting with people, community outings, dogs/all animals, bugs, music, humor, and learning new things.
This long term position is for someone who truly enjoys working with special needs. C is a small, autism spectrum adult, functioning like a child. He speaks, but requires communication help. Frustrated C has grabby/pinchy hand behaviors. Ideal caregivers are clever and calm, can identify triggers, anticipate responses, and diffuse difficult situations to keep everyone safe. We hope you are looking for a challenge and all the rewards that come with it!
