Purpose of Job

 

Our son Brandon is 12-years old and is a lovely bubbly lad who loves a bit of toilet humour.

 

Brandon mostly likes spending his time playing on his PS4 and Nintendo Switch, his current favourites are Fortnite, Minecraft and Super Mario and he’s a big fan of Luigi.

 

Brandon takes time to get to know and trust new people therefore initially it would be to build up a positive relationship with our son.

 

Brandon experienced a brain infection damaging the nerves which has been life changing impacting on all aspects of his life including his speech, mobility, his ability to feed himself and toilet needs.

 

Brandon struggles to communicate verbally and uses a communication board and is very good at pointing, he also cannot eat and is peg fed although he has started eating solids. He is also incontinent and uses a pubic catheter although he has a very regular routine however on rare occasions, he might have a little accident so an element of personal care may be required.

Training will be provided in these matters.

 

Brandon also uses a wheelchair but is averse to going out in the community at the current time. However, he has been setting himself goals each day to trying really hard to regain and relearn the things he has been able to do previously.

 

Ideally Brandon would like his PA to be a gamer with similar interests who is enthusiastic with a genuine interest and enjoyment in working with children.

The purpose of this job will be to provide him with social assistance and assisting him in achieving his goals, ensuring his safety at all times.
