Respite care is being requested for two non-verbal boys with autism, ages 15 and 8, at their home in Bainbridge. Help is needed during after-school hours 2-3 days per week and, if possible, full days when they are off from school. A weekend night here and there would be ideal. The days are flexible. Responsibilities would include watching the boys, making their meals for them, and helping them with household things.

The 15-year-old uses diapers for bowel movements but uses the toilet for urinating so he'll need his diaper changed. He needs watched constantly and needs one-on-one help with most things. He will have down time where he sits on the couch or plays in his room calmly but for the most part he needs someone close by.  He uses an iPad to help him communicate. Tantrums are possible, which can include crying, screaming, hitting, or kicking the walls, etc. He is usually able to be redirected or will calm down on his own.

The 8-year-old is also diagnosed with CVS and PANDAS. He is currently in the process of potty training. He is using  a lot of words lately but also has an iPad to help him communicate. He loves watching movies and TV shows on his iPad.

Both boys are very kind, loving, and caring. They love laughing and hugs.

Please also note that  the boys are not on waivers but we would pay you the waiver-equivalent rate through the Geauga County Board of DD's Family and Home Based Supports program. You would just need to be set up as a vendor if you aren't already. Thank you.
