Searching for babysitters for type 1 children is a difficult task. At Safesittings, we are aware of this issue.
SAFESITTINGS is a nationwide website that makes available teens with Type 1 diabetes as babysitters for children with diabetes. These teens have been managing their own care for many years. They understand the dangerous highs ands lows inherent in the disease and have the skills to test blood sugars, give insulin injections, adjust insulin pumps and treat hypoglycemia.
Safesittings is a not for profit organization. Fees for babysitting will be determined and agreed upon on a case by case basis through discussion between each family and babysitter. Transportation expenses and/or time may also be considered.
