Purpose of Job

I am a gentleman with a visual impairment and a learning disability. I live with my adult daughter. Although I am independent, I need assistance to undertake household activities.


This position will involve assisting in the home with domestic tasks such as cooking although I very much enjoy cooking independently but occasionally, I require assistance and I am always happy to try new recipes, housework, and laundry, assisting me to safely access the community in order to shop for both food and other things such as clothes, support me to deal with my letters and paperwork and arrange and attend appointments as required.  I also enjoy the gym and swimming so you would need to be willing and able to support me around these activities.


I also have a Motability car which you will be required to drive therefore a clean driving license is essential.


I am a keen gardener and like to go shopping for food and clothes and am a member of the National Trust and enjoy days out.

I have a few set routes that I need to practice on a regular basis.
