They also struggle with some mental illness from early developmental trauma, as well as some attachment issues. The job would include coordinating meal prep, supervising hygiene/bathing/dressing, assistance with light chores, and accompanying them on occasional outings. We also have 2 dogs, so being an animal lover is important.
