Weekend caregiver needed for older teen with special needs - Ny, NY
Posted by Amanda R. on 10/25/2021
Start date: Flexible
- $20.00 per hour
We have 18-yr-old twins; one is autistic (but verbal), the other is more advanced but still on the spectrum. We need a weekend caregiver to alternate weekends (sometimes alternating days) with another caregiver. Hours: 11:30-7:30 Sat. & Sun. We welcome Sat. night babysitting! The position is mainly engaging our autistic son in activities & excursions, plus supervising life skills (showering, bathroom). It also involves preparing/cleaning up after meals for both boys, making beds and occasionally easy errands (e.g., picking up milk). Our sons are charming & sweet, but given their challenges, patience & flexibility is also a job requirement. Our caregivers are paid on the books via Medicaid every 2 weeks (direct deposit or check). To be hired, our caregivers need to be fingerprinted (this is easy - location can be in your neighborhood) and fill out online forms (also easy).
