Loving family with a 5-year-old special needs boy with limited mobility is seeking a caring, energetic, and experienced nanny. Position is Monday through Friday 8:15am-6:15pm. Primary task is to help child walk or support in equipment or lift/carry. Daily support includes lifting in/out of high chair, car seat, change table or toilet. The other main function of position is to play with the boy! Some of his play is therapeutic (“play with purpose”) and may include practicing sitting, walking and kicking a beach ball, playing with toys, or reading books. He loves music and singing as well as helping turn the pages when reading a book.
There is some clean up for the child, but any cleaning would be tied to him (i.e., folding his clothes, washing his dishes, cleaning his toys at the end of the day or as needed, changing sheets on his bed, etc.). The family uses another service for housekeeping so that is not expected.
Must be able to work alongside grandmother who is very involved in the boy’s day-to-day activities. The perfect candidate would have special needs experience and a bachelor’s degree is preferred but not required.
Pay is $825 per week and does include some paid holidays/vacation days.
Family is very kind and loving and wants a nanny that will become a part of their family. Must be willing to make a one-year commitment.
