I am an 8-year-old boy who would like some people to help me when I’m at home as I need support all the time. Although I use a wheelchair and need quite a lot of help because of my health needs, I like to be kept busy. I like toys that make lots of noises and have lots of things for me to touch and feel. I like chatting and knowing what everyone else is doing, going out to the park and shops and watching my favourite TV programmes. I live with my mum and dad and older sisters. I love it when they join in and play with me. Although I know I’m meant to sleep throughout the night, I need someone to stay awake and check that I am okay and help me if I need anything.
I have let Mary, my case manager, give all the details about the staff that I need, but would love to meet with you after you have been interviewed by my parents.
This is an exciting opportunity to support this lovely boy in his home. We are initially recruiting a Saturday Support Worker from 7.00am until 4.00pm with the principle aim to support with daily activities ensuring all of his play, medical and therapeutic needs are met.
We are also recruiting Waking Night Support Workers to work 7.00pm until 7.00am to ensure all his needs, including medical needs, are met throughout the night and to support him to get ready for his day in the morning. Our client has cerebral palsy and additional health needs, therefore there is a comprehensive induction process, training in all areas of support, clear and concise care plans and regular supervision meetings for all members of staff.
The support workers need to have enthusiasm and compassion and be able to support the client in all aspects of daily care as written in the job description.
Waking nights 7.00pm until 7.00am
Saturday hours 7.00am until 4.00pm
