Hello, I am looking for a part time, possibly full time nanny/babysitter for my 19 month old daughter. I am a graduate student at SU with the Marriage and Family Therapy Masters program. I am looking for a responsible, reliable, trustworthy individual to provide childcare in my home, with light meal prep for Amelia and light house work. I will be doing remote learning as well as tele-therapy with clients when I am not in class. It’s important that I remain focused in my sessions with clients during tele-therapy and would need someone reliable to watch my daughter while I’m in session. I would be in home while paying for your time. Amelia was diagnosed with a congenital unilateral cataract in her eye which has left her essentially blind in that one eye. Post cataract surgery, we are working to rehabilitate the weaker eye. She is able to see out of the other eye but would need extra attention when her good eye is patched/covered to strengthen the vision and muscles in her weaker eye. Things she was able to do prior to the surgery and patching such as reaching for things, walking with good visual awareness, and seeing anything farther than a few centimeters, are now difficult for her when she has to wear the patch. She almost needs direct support and supervision and this is a difficult ask in regard to finding public childcare and feel it would be best to have someone we can trust and create a relationship with to help her with activities she is used to doing when she can see versus when she has to wear the patch. We will be doing interviews with a few Nannies to get a feel of each and in how they interact with Amelia. I do not have a set schedule for client sessions yet as we are currently on break but I will communicate that information when I have it. If you are available and would like to schedule an interview with my family, please feel free to reach out and we can set something up! Thank you!
Must be good with dogs and cats.
