Aisha is a delightful 10-year-old who enjoys water/bath time, long drives in the car, playing on her iPad, watching Peppa Pig, singing and music. Aisha has cerebral palsy and epilepsy and requires assistance to meet all her daily needs. She uses hoists to transfer, has gastrostomy feeds and is a wheelchair user. Aisha is unable to verbally communicate but can hear you and responds with facial expressions, noises and smiles. Aisha is currently learning to use Eye Gaze at school, so if you have experience or an interest in these areas to help support Aisha’s communication, this will be ideal.
We are seeking a dedicated *female waking night support worker to tend to all Aisha care needs including personal care, moving and handling, administering medication and feed via her PEG. Aisha has uncontrolled epilepsy so she requires close observation throughout the night via her monitor. Aisha will also require support with her morning routine and getting ready for a busy day at school.
Please note, this role will fit with another part-time job, but because of Aisha’s complex needs, it is not a position that can be worked alongside another full-time job.
Excellent training available and the opportunity to support an endearing young lady. If you have the experience we are looking for then please apply today!
*Gender is considered to be a genuine occupational requirement in accordance with paragraph 1 of Schedule 9 of the Equality Act 2010 for a female worker to work with our client.
Please note, whilst Snap endeavour to reply to all applications, some of our positions are so popular this is not possible and only shortlisted candidates will be contacted.
