Experienced Personal Assistants required for a lady who has cerebral palsy living in the Oxford area.
Our client is a 20 year old lady who is wheelchair dependant and requires support with personal care, transfers, accessing the community, managing her emotional needs and other aspects of her daily life. She has recently moved to live independently away from home.
We are looking for competent and interested persons to join our team to support our client in her daily living, and work towards her independence. The Personal Assistant should have some background of mental health, brain injury or other similar experience and must be able to manage challenging situations and the emotional demands associated with such work. Training, with supervision and Therapists/Case Manager support will be provided.
The Personal Assistant should also be able to help the client undertake educational, social and leisure activities, to include supporting with a home exercise programme set up by the physiotherapist, shopping, cinema and going to events.
