Weekend and date night caregiver for young adult on autism spectrum

Posted by Amanda R. on 5/21/2024

  • $25.00 per hour

Friendly Upper West Side family looking for caregiver to cover some weekends (Sat/Sun 12-7:30 pm) and some weekend/weeknight date nights. Our twin sons are 21; one is autistic (but verbal) and our caregivers mostly focus on him. The other is also on the spectrum but fairly independent; he’s in college and home on weekends/school breaks. Position includes actively engaging our son in indoor and outdoor activities and supervising life skills (e.g., showering, using bathroom). Position also involves making beds and meal preparation/clean-up for both boys (when our other son is home) and occasional errands (e.g., light grocery shopping). Our boys have Medicaid disability benefits, so our caregivers are paid on the books via the boys' Medicaid budgets every 2 weeks (direct deposit or check). This requires some initial hiring paperwork via the agency that manages payroll.
