Joshua, 18, is a fantastic, communicative, loving and adventurous young man who is seeking a flexible weekend and school holiday PA / Support Worker to assist with his daily routine when at home. Joshua has complex physical needs; cerebral palsy, epilepsy, is registered blind and is fed and medicated via JPEG. He is non-verbal but is a bright young man who can communicate using a communication book and a VOCA and can make his needs known. Joshua has two teenage sisters so you can imagine this is a busy household!
We are looking for a pro-active and experienced PA / Support Worker with a ‘can do’ attitude. You’ll need to be strong and fit; Joshua is lifted with hoists (or occasionally a two person lift if out and about), and this is a physically demanding job (pushing a manual wheelchair, rolling / turning to get dressed etc.) The family provide excellent training, but you will need to be confident, with a background in supporting people with a physical disability.
The role includes planning activities, trips and days out, and providing the best care to ensure Joshua is safe, healthy and of course happy! You will assist with his personal care, medication, feeding, physiotherapy and keeping areas he uses clean and tidy. Joshua will need your assistance for all his activities, so you’ll need to be creative and patient. This role is a mixture of sole charge, 1:1 care and at times working alongside other family members. Support is needed at weekends throughout the year (This can be negotiated with the family depending on when Joshua is home from his residential college), plus all school holidays excluding 2 weeks during the summer holidays. This could be a job share position so if you’re interested let us know what hours / days you are available.
To find out more about this wonderful opportunity to support Joshua and work alongside his lovely family who are well known to Snap, please apply today!
