The Nanny League NANNY NEEDED FOR CHILD WITH SPECIAL NEEDS IN HUDSON VALLEY in Newburgh, New York
NEWBURGH, NY-Amazing mom living in the HUDSON VALLEY is looking for a PART-TIME NANNY to help care for her 18-year-old son with Down Syndrome. He has had the same caretaker since he was an infant who primarily cares for him 3-4 days per week, but they are looking for a second caregiver to help one weekday from 7:30am-6pm; two nights per week from 6-10pm; Saturdays or Sundays (either) from 10am-6pm. This would be approx. 25-30 hours/week guaranteed. He will be attending school in person from April 19-the first week of June. The hours are subject to change over the summer and if/when he starts school again in the fall. Flexibility is key! His long-time nanny is there 3-4 days per week and arrives at 9:30am and takes care of the cooking and caretaking as well. He is nonverbal but is easy to understand and communicate with. The ideal candidate has experience working with persons with special needs such as Down Syndrome, autism, nonverbal, etc. Nanny must be comfortable helping him with activities of daily living.
