About the service user

I’m a 30 year old woman with Asperger’s syndrome, who loves animals and gaming.  I struggle with motivation to carry out life tasks that aren’t entertaining. 

 

Sometimes I’m not confident that I am doing things correctly, so reassurance is helpful.  Sometimes I know how to do tasks, but I don’t notice when they need to be done.

Hours and rate of Pay

1–2 hours, 3-4 afternoons per week (Mon, Wed, Thu, Fri) maximum 4 hours per week @ £12 per hour.  Plus holiday pay pro-rata

 

What you would be doing…

Providing support with motivation to take gentle exercise and carry out basic housework tasks (wiping surfaces, emptying bins, dishwasher, etc.) and household admin.

Although direct help with personal care and hygiene is not required (I know how to look after myself) I do need regular reminders.

Support to look after my health and well being.

Support with identifying suitable social activities and with accessing those activities.. 

The person I would like…

I would like a person with a good sense of humour and a gentle, supportive approach to their work.  It’s important that they are non-judgemental and empathetic.  An understanding of Autism Spectrum disorders would be an advantage, as well as an understanding of the issues facing disabled people and a commitment to promoting independence.

Good written and verbal communication skills will be helpful for me and for my team. It’s important that you can work under your own initiative, but also work well as part of my team.
