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, and toilet needs.

 

Brandon can communicate verbally however there are occasions when he might struggle but he is very good at pointing to communicate his needs.

He is also incontinent and uses a pubic catheter however he has a very regular routine although on very rare occasions, he might have a little accident so an element of personal care may be required.

Training will be provided in these matters.

 

The family have recently acquired a black Labrador puppy which over the next 12 months will be in training as a therapy dog.

Brandon also uses a wheelchair, and his confidence is growing when going out in the community especially with the puppy accompanying him. Therefore, the PA would need to feel comfortable around dogs.

 

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.
