Job Title: Personal Assistant (Care)
Location: Brentwood (CM15)
Rate of Pay: £10.00 per hour
Hours: 3 hours per week
Pattern of Work: To be arranged
Personal Assistant (Care) needed to support my 16 year old son to gain some independence and access the community as he has epilepsy, learning and speech difficulties
and some behavioral issues.
He is a friendly and easy going person who loves trains and happily watches Thomas the Tank Engine, Toy Storey, Peppa Pig and other DVDS when at home.
When out he enjoys activities such as horse riding and ten pin bowling with assistance but he tires easily so he uses a wheelchair for longer journeys.
He will need to have a driver with their own vehicle to be able to take him so expenses/mileage will be discussed, if invited to interview.
Experience or Qualifications:
Experience in supporting someone with some behavioral issues would be an advantage. It is essential that you have experience of seizures and training in administering Buccal Midazolam.
Any offers are subject to a DBS check, receipt of two references and checking the legal right to live and work in the UK.
As some personal care is involved, he would feel more comfortable with a male carer. This advert complies with the Sex Discrimination Act (1975) Section 7 (2b).
