Personal Assistant (Care) needed to support my daughter to live independently and access the community, as she has physical and learning disabilities.
She needs support with her personal care, which will include showering and support with her continence needs. My daughter will require full support at mealtimes and careful monitoring as she is at risk at these times.
There are some household tasks, such as keeping her bathroom clean and her bedroom tidy and well ordered. As well as supporting my daughter in the home, the role will include accessing the community in her vehicle so you would need to be over 21 years old with a full driving licence.
My daughter likes to go shopping and also loves to go swimming regularly so it is important that applicants can support her in these activities. When she is at home, she is very happy watching television and enjoys having company.
Breaks and mileage will be discussed, if invited to interview.
Additional hours may become available, so I am looking for someone who is flexible.
Experience or Qualifications:
My daughter is living with Rett Syndrome and Autism so experience in these or similar conditions would be advantageous however training will be provided to the right candidate.
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, I would feel more comfortable with a female carer. This advert complies with the Sex Discrimination Act (1975) Section 7 (2b).
