Carer needed for special needs child at school and in afternoon at home - Hoekwil area
Our 3 year old son was born with Spina Bifida Myelomeningocele which means:
-he needs assistance walking (learning how to use crutches and he has a walker) other than that he is pretty happy on his knees or walking by holding on with both hands. He wears splints on both legs as he has no feeling in his feet. These give him stability.
- he needs to be catherised 5 times a day. Once after getting up and before going to bed which I will do.
3 times during the day (every 3 hrs) which means to enter a catheter, let urine run out into a cup and pull out again. Sterilise catheters, done. Change diaper. All in all 5-10min.
- he takes medication 3 times a day. I will give in the morning and evening. You would need to give at lunch time. It is a half a tablet and he takes it very easy with a spoon of yogurt.
We have a place for him at Hoekwil Pre-Primary school from 15th January 2020. The school is happy to accommodate our son as long as he has a carer with him.
Our son only has a physical disability not mentally therefore doing everything a normal 3 year old would do. He loves to talk, play with cars/trucks and legos. Paint, craft etc.
Ideally we are looking for someone from Touwsranten, Wilderness, Kleinkrantz area that can be with our 3 year old son at Kindergarten Monday to Friday from 07h30 until approx. 13h00-14h00.
We also have an older son attending 1st Grade at Hoekwil Primary next year so we could look at a full time position taking care of the two of them in the afternoons on our farm close by. Part time also possible. Lets talk.
Looking forward to hearing from you with your CV and references if you are prepared to take on such a role.
Salary negotiable as I wouldn't know where to start yet.
