DANVILLE, CA (LOCAL CANDIDATES PREFERRED)-Incredible single mom (widow) is looking for a patient and caring FULL-TIME NANNY for her 11-year-old daughter with special needs. She is incredibly sweet and has no behavioral issues, but requires physical assistance to be fed, showered, diapered, etc. She is mentally aware, present and intelligent. She does have occasional seizures. She is nonverbal but her eyes communicate well...so well that people can understand her well and quickly. She is incredibly happy, sweet and is always smiling. All she asks for is attention and kindness. Someone to be her friend and engage with her! She has a 13-year-old sister in the home who is self-sufficient and typically requires no care. Mom would love a nanny who is open to helping with the eldest from time to time (mostly just transporting her to activities if needed) but is also okay with the nanny being solely responsible for the youngest. Core hours are from afterschool at 3pm-8/9pm Monday-Friday. Weekends are strongly desired and necessary to get to 40 hours per week, however each weekend day is not required. Mom is flexible and willing to work out a mutually beneficial schedule. Position can be live in or out. Live in accommodations consist of a private bedroom and shared bathroom. The children go to school and come home around 3:30. The youngest showers (with assistance) afterschool, has a snack and spends time reading or going on walks until dinner. Nanny will need to feed her dinner, administer medication and put her to sleep; essentially help with all daily activities. On weekends, they like to go out for walks, take trips to the pool, visit the zoo, parks, etc. Occasional driving to therapy and outings may be required. Must have a clean driving record and ideally a reliable vehicle (vehicle can be negotiable). The children have gone through lots of trauma in losing their father, so mom is looking for a quality, kind caregiver who is positive and can help create fun for her daughter(s). The ideal candidate is responsible, kind, patient, caring and neat. A plus if you have special needs experience, but not required. Some of their best caregivers/sitters have had no special needs experience and immediately clicked and understood all of the child’s needs! Covid vaccination and all other basic childhood vaccinations are required. They are open to relocating someone from out of state but prefer local candidates if possible. Pay is $25-35/hour depending on experience. Benefits are negotiable. Start date is ASAP but flexible for the right candidate.
