Daniel, aged 10, and his family are looking for dedicated waking night carers to join their home care team.

Daniel has Cerebral Palsy, Epilepsy and Dystonic Spasms. He is non-verbal and is fully dependent on others for all of his personal care, transfers and mobilisation in his wheelchair.

The family are Lithuanian and it would be beneficial if the Support Worker spoke Lithuanian too, though this is not essential.
