Short-term Childcare Needed - July 22-August 3

Nanny needed for child with severe disabilities at a vacation rental in Standish, ~30 mins from Portland. Looking for someone for ~11:30-4:30, m-f from 7/22-8/3, with weekends, if possible. Pay is $20/hr, for ~25 hours/week. 

"We are looking someone to come relieve us around lunchtime to feed her, and give her community habilitation services per her Medicaid ISP, then feed her dinner before leaving. She's on a purée diet, so while she loves to eat, it can take a while, and the process needs to be handled carefully. She is the sweetest, most loving little child, who has a profound impact on anyone who meets her."
