I am a young gentleman who lives at home with my parents. I suffered from severe hypoxic injury to the brain at birth which resulted in cerebral palsy with complex healthcare needs. Due to this, I have epilepsy, require a wheelchair and need skilled care to provide me support through a 24-hour period. I have a tracheostomy and gastrostomy in place.
The role includes supporting me with my health needs throughout the day and I am looking for a dedicated Support Worker preferably with prior experience of tracheostomy and gastrostomy care although full training will be provided. I also have a high level of anxiety which requires my personal assistant to provide me with assurance.
A full, valid driving licence is required as you will be driving the client’s car as needed.
