PERSONAL ASSISTANT / SUPPORT WORKER
I am a calm, sensitive and enthusiastic 20 year old lad, living at home with mum, stepdad and 2 brothers in the Newtown area. I am may not be much of a talker but I do enjoy being out and seeing people.
My passions are watching movies on Netflix, cars, Thomas the Tank Engine, music, and I enjoy taking photographs. One thing I really don’t like is dogs!
I enjoy going for long walks especially if they’re a trip through my local area. I would like a PA who could accompany me to the shops and come for a walk with me.
I have Autism and for me this means that I can take language literally and so would need my PA to be mindful of this and how they word things. I currently attend Newtown College and am enjoying the experience.
I’m looking for someone who is active, kind, and understanding to work with me as my PA, to support me to get out and enjoy activities independently of my family.
It would be great if you can come up with some ideas of interesting places we could go and things we could do, but also to encourage me to make sensible decisions of what we do, which will help me gain confidence and empower me.
