Life is busy. As parents, we juggle our careers, relationships, our children ’s schooling, extra-curricular activities and more. Often times our responsibilities exceed our physical availability and we need some help. Nicole Wrice, owner of Magnolia Heart Nannies, experienced feeling overwhelmed herself. She sought help but finding a nanny to accommodate her daughter, who has seizures, ADHD, and mild retardation, brought upon some obstacles. “When I’d try to hire a nanny, I was often told, ‘Oh I do n’t know how to work with special needs kids. I don’t know how to give medications.’ I met a lot of other families having issues with caretakers who couldn’t do simple things like inhalers, etc. People were frustrated with the struggle to find a nanny for special needs,” Nicole explains. As a result, Nicole founded Magnolia Heart Nanny Services. Magnolia Heart offers different nanny packages to accommodate a family’s needs from full-time or live-in nannies to part-time babysitters. Employees are required to take courses in Autism, ADHD, Down Syndrome and inhaler usage. Each nanny also completes a background check and is CPR certified. “Our goal is to make our employees familiar, comfortable and competent,” Nicole says. MH also offers caretakers for seniors, event nannies, mom ’s morning out and date night events. “If you need us, we’re there,” Nicole assures.
Nannies are also scheduled for the unexpected, like a special delivery. “We had a mom schedule us for the arrival of her new baby. I had a nanny on standby to stay with the sibling. It brings peace of mind.” She explains. Magnolia Heart Nannies strives to break away from the typical expectations of a nanny and strives to make life a little less hectic.
