A new opportunity is now available in Hertfordshire, we have a mixture of shifts available and happy to consider suitable applicants looking for either a full or part time position. Our client Josh 13, lives at home with his Mum and Dad who currently tend to all his care needs. We are recruiting a full care team to provide 24/7 support.
Josh is a bundle of energy and always on the go! He loves football, tennis, computer games and music. He has mild cerebral palsy, brittle epilepsy and a visual impairment. Josh also has learning delay. Although he has complex needs and requires 1:1 support, he is full of adventure and loves creating mischief!
In this role you will support Josh with all his care needs which include personal care, behavioural management and administer medication. As this is an on-call night, you’ll be alert to Josh via a monitor and tend to his care needs as required throughout the night. Each night will be different, and some nights Josh will not require any support or intervention, however his epilepsy is unpredictable and affects his sleep. 10:00pm – 7:00am will be the night time shift and from 7:00am – 10:00am you will assist with the morning routine and drive Josh to school if he is well enough to attend.
Josh has brittle epilepsy, he can have multiple seizures throughout the day and night so therefore it is essential you have experience supporting a client with epilepsy. We can only consider confident drivers, swimmers and non-smokers.
