Special Needs Nanny
Hello! My name is Jazmin. I am currently a special needs nanny for a severely autistic young man. I recently returned from a trip to Guatemala where I taught English, Art, and Cooking to women and children ages 5-30. I also worked on a cleft lip and malnutrition project while I was there. It was the most rewarding experience of my life. I am currently attending college and studying social sciences in the hopes of going to law school (many years left to go!). I enjoy being with children, I also enjoy the educational benefits that come with caring for a child such as physical activities and cognitive growth. I enjoy cooking, especially baking as well as reading and sports. But most importantly I am patient with children. You are more than welcome to check out my profile on Care. com. Thank you for your consideration.

24 Hour Live In Care For The Elderly And/or Special Needs Persons
Avg response < 5 hrs
I have several years experience working with special needs persons. I have worked with quadriplegics, mental dementia, including Alzheimer's, persons with Parkinson's, and I grew up with a father who was totally blind and handicapped. I love helping people have a life filled with enjoyment and activities that enhance their lives. I also have learned so much from being with those who have to struggle just to do the daily things that those of us who are blessed with good health and no disabilities take for granted. I have seen people persevere and overcome obstacles that would bring some of us down to the depths of depression. I am so grateful to have known these individuals.
