Samuel, 11, is a fun-loving, engaging and mischievous chap who enjoys bike rides, swimming and playing games with his siblings. Samuel has cerebral palsy, is a wheelchair user and communicates using his computer; he requires support with all his care needs. Everyone who meets Samuel is quite captivated by him; he is a pleasure to work with.
Samuel is a very bright, independent and determined young man who knows what he wants and is very capable of expressing his needs. You’ll support Samuel with his personal care, manual handling, therapy, day time activities, play dates, and education.
You’ll need to be able to work alongside other members of the care team, including from time to time Samuel's parents. In this role you’ll have the opportunity to work with Samuel's therapists, implementing their programmes and working towards his goals.
