A couple weeks ago a sister in our stake, Nicki Morton, was involved in a serious car accident. During the accident she sustained serious head injuries, broke both her legs and has since suffered a stroke as a result of the accident. She will be in the hospital recovering for the next 6-12 weeks.
Since Nicki has 4 children, her husband, Jake, has decided that the only way he can meet the demands of his kids, spend time with Nicki at the hospital/rehab facility, and work is to hire a live in nanny for a couple months. He has reached out to members in the stake to see if anyone would be able to help, or knows of anyone who could help. He'd probably prefer someone who is LDS, but at this point I'm sure he'd consider anyone. He has family in town for next week, but is looking for help starting right after that.
Jake will be around the house at some point during the day to spend time with the children, but he will spend nights either at the hospital or in other friend's homes as he knows that he obviously would need to sleep elsewhere. His ideal candidate is a young single sister that is looking for some full time work for just a couple of months. He wonders if there would be a sister that is waiting to go on her mission and is available. He might be willing to consider a live-in couple who do not have kids yet.
Nicki and Jake have 4 kids, ages 4-9, 2 boys, 2 girls. The oldest 3 are in school all day.
Jake is looking to hire someone that can get the kids off to school in the mornings, watch the youngest during the day and then get the kids home from school in the afternoon. There may be some other things he would need to be done, but this would allow him to go back to work.
If you, or someone you know, is interested, please contact Bishop Chaplin who can get you more details. Although this is a paid job, it is a great service opportunity to help this great family.
