India (12) is a charming young lady with a fantastic sense of humour. She enjoys relaxing at home, baking and arts and crafts activities. India has cerebral palsy, epilepsy and autism. India is mobile and verbal and can express her needs, however she can display challenging behavior when unable to clearly communicate or when she feels her needs aren’t being met. India requires support with most daily tasks, from assistance with feeding to personal care.
You will be responsible for supporting India through personal care routines, any required therapy exercises, accompanying her out or organizing fun activities she can engage in. India enjoys going to cafes and ten pin bowling but tires easily and feels vulnerable when out for extended periods.
The job will require you to work closely with India’s family and a team of staff, so a team player is essential.
This job will suit an energetic, caring and kind person who enjoys working within a family home and providing 1:1 support. This is a great opportunity to work with this fantastic family and help India to reach her full potential.
