Purpose of Job

 

There is a position for a PA for a very happy, delightful, charming, and smiley 7-year-old boy who lives with his mum and his older brother.

He loves socialising and is very responsive to attention.

He is very tactile and loves hydrotherapy and anything sensory and is also very observant of things around him.

 

He communicates through smiling if he likes something or if he doesn’t, he will shake his head. He also uses vocalisations, eye contact and eye pointing.

He enjoys being around other people particularly his family and enjoys watching cartoons and films with his older brother.

He loves to get dressed up and gets really excited whether it’s going to school or going out in his wheelchair

 

He was born with congenital 4-limb cerebral palsy with no self iniated movement and has both spastic and dystonic CP causing his limbs to become rigid preventing him from bending and relaxing into comfortable positions whilst at the same time involuntary movements cause his limbs to flex uncontrollably. This can prove to be very distressing and extremely painful for him.

He also wears nappies therefore an element of personal care will be involved.

He receives all his medication and all his nutrition by prescription feeds and fluids through a gastrostomy tube button you will be responsible for and training will be provided.
