Caregiver needed for 15 year old boy with autism in Carol Stream, IL

I received this email from a very close friend of mine whose son is one of my former students. If anyone is able to help, or knows of a person or agency that can assist her please let me know or feel free to contact Diane directly. Feel free to pass this note to people who could possibly assist. Thanks for you help!!!!! ~ Angelina

Unfortunately, last night I had to let my caregiver go and ask her and husband to leave my home. I won't go into detail in this email; however, this leaves me without a caregiver for Joshua. I would sincerely appreciate if you would put the word out that I am looking for someone to care for Josh while I am work. I would prefer a live in but am willing to interview people that would like to come and go. During the school year, I need someone from 2:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday. Once in a while I might need someone on Mondays if his dad cannot pick him up from school. Obviously, during Christmas Break I need someone. I usually am off spring break with him. In the summer he goes to summer school for most of the summer except for about 5 weeks (two weeks in June and three weeks in August). However, he only goes to school half days in the summer and I would need that person on Tuesdays and Fridays from 11:45 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Please feel free to give anyone my information. My cell phone is 708-814-7263 and I live in Carol Stream.
