Unique LVN Caregiver opportunity

 

I am looking for a compassionate LVN caregiver / Assistant for my 22 year old son, Hayden.  It can be a very satisfying and rewarding job as my son, while physically disabled, is going to  college in person, striving for a degree in architecture.  The ideal candidate will be reliable, patient, friendly with excellent communication skills and have a willingness to learn about a rare disease along with the medical knowledge required to work along side him.  Hayden's interests are art, architecture, gaming, movies, books, star wars, Warriors and Giants.

Hayden moves between my house in Novato and his father's house in Mill Valley - one week on/ off in each.  The ideal person would be willing to go to both houses, but having someone only in the Novato house works as well.  

Hayden currently goes to College of Marin.  The ideal candidate would be able to take him to his classes.
