About this client/child:
Our client Tom is a 9-year-old cheeky chap who lives at home with his Mum and Dad. Tom has cerebral palsy and additional medical needs; he is tube fed and is a wheelchair user. Tom is supported by a home care team who provide round the clock care. The team work closely with Mum and Dad who are instrumental in their son’s care. Tom is seeking an additional support worker to join his small home care team.
Overview of role:
You’ll get Tom ready for bed, set up his bedroom and sleep system, ensure he is comfortable and settle him to sleep. As this is an On-Call Night you can then go to bed, however, you will need to be alert to Tom waking during the night via an audio monitor. He can have settled nights but is often disturbed a couple of times and can take time to settle back down; he may need repositioning to help him drift back off to sleep. In the morning, you’ll assist with the usual routine and help get Tom ready for school. When supporting Tom on a Saturday, you’ll create fun, educational and engaging activities such as music and movement, playing outside on the swings, sensory play as well as implement his therapy programmes.
Who this job would suit:
The position will suit a confident, reliable and caring candidate who has flexibility to fit into the team and support the family with the care hours required and to possibly accompany Tom and his family on holidays in the UK or abroad. Additional hours are available, to be discussed during interview.
What’s great about this job:
You’ll receive excellent training, learn new skills and work as part of a fantastic care team.
