Our son is 11 years old; he is a placid boy, who requires support in all aspects of daily living. He like sensory toys like sand and lights.

 

We are looking for a Personal Assistant to support him with all of his daily needs. As he cannot do anything independently, the main part of this role is to pick him up from school, ensuring a good handover with school staff, then support him at home. You will be feeding him, showering him and getting him ready for bed. You must be willing to change clothes, nappies and attend to his personal care. There will also be some medication to be given.

 

A very important part of your role will be to ensure his safety at all times, especially when transferring to and from his wheelchair. Good general health is important, as is the need to be flexible. Experience is preferred but training will be provided for the right candidate.

 

As my sons Personal Assistant, you will work under my direction to meet his needs and will be accountable to me in all aspects of your work. You must be reliable, be able to use your initiative and be able to work flexible hours. You must also be able to respect our privacy and understand the need for confidentiality in all areas of your work.

 

We consider patience and enthusiasm to be essential attributes for this job. Ideally you would be a car driver, as we have a car for our son to get around in.
