Seeking Full-time Nanny to care for special needs Child & her active 13 yr old sibling. When the pandemic hit made the decision to go nanny free as our nanny or 6 yrs who was leaving was also doing nursing at night. As the plan was already for her to move into a full time roll in March to finish her BS in nursing via northwestern timing seemed to work out sadly. It was not how we planned our ending. We are so happy for her and she will remain family to us. While we are heart broken, sadly we have to begin the task we never imagined in replacing a member of our family. Our 8-year-old has special needs- Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy, Lenox-Gestalt Epilepsy and a Newly places GTube which will require no fear and experience taking care of this type of medical equipment. Our 13 is very active at school and outside. Candidate must love special kiddos and have experience with medical needs/nursing. We would prefer someone who could help out with light housekeeping, meal preparation, laundry and homework help. Sitter is required to have their own car and insurance. You must not smoke. Occasional overnights are key but with my travel nonexistent until January/February it would be minimal at best but something needed when movement is allowed. You must be fun, positive and willing to think out of the box with our youngest. Lifting 40 lbs and safely doing so while going up and downstairs is key. You must be willing to drive children to school/swimming and activities along with helping at key physician and specialist appointments. We would love a modern day Mary Poppins who love music, crafts, baking and wont shy away from the not so fun stuff of e-learning or hands on learning with a non-verbal/mobile but active and aware child. Ideal candidate has not had a criminal record, who is CPR certified. loves children, will never lay a hand on them outside of a loving one and will keep them busy and safe at all times. A trained CNA or RN experience is ideal though training can be tackled for the right person. Must be comfortable with special needs child who needs medication, feeding tube, bathing and diaper changes. . Must have your own reliable safe car, clean driving record and insurance. College degree a plus, but not a deal breaker for the right person. We are ready to invite you into our home if you are taking this pandemic seriously. Start in September but no end date as we have had 2 caregivers in 14 yrs! Are we your new family?
