Job Title: Personal Assistant (care) – Male
Rate of Pay: £10.00 per hour
Hours: 3 hours per week (flexible)
Personal Assistant needed to support a 13 year old boy with physical disabilities to access the community and live independently.
My son has a great sense of humour and is fun to be with. He has a muscle wasting condition that means his care needs will increase as his condition progresses, so assistance with personal care will be required as and when instructed in a sensitive and dignified manner.
Our son is a full-time powered wheelchair user, although his current care needs are relatively low for this role. He is trying to remain as independent as possible, and the primary focus of this role will be to access the community and live independently, whilst getting used to having a carer(s) to support with current and future personal needs.
Hours will be after school &/or weekend, and may increase during school holidays. Additional hours may also become available, as my son’s needs increase, so we are looking for someone who is flexible.
Any interest in gaming, going to the cinema, cooking and bowling would be beneficial.
Driver preferred but not essential at this stage.
Experience or qualifications:
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 will be involved, my son would feel more comfortable with a male carer. This advert complies with the Sex Discrimination Act (1975) Section 7 (2b).
