Are you looking for an opportunity to make a real difference in the life of a young adult man with full mental capacity by helping him live as normal a life as possible? Then maybe you would like to join a small team of part time Personal Assistants that work to support the client who experiences a long- term chronic condition resulting in severe pain, limited mobility and anxiety and depression?
Training will be provided and on-going support from a senior Personal Assistance.
Workplace pension offered when eligible criteria is met.
The role encompasses completing every-day domestic tasks in the client’s own home and assisting implementing care plans and interventions as directed by physiotherapist, mental health and other clinical professionals involved in the clients care.
Equally important is assisting with planning and implementing events outside of the home to fit in with the client’s interests, as well as initiating and widening the range of social activities to promote independence. Therefore use of a car is a very positive advantage.
Everyone brings something different to the role but ideally you will have experience of working independently and using your initiative, good humour, strong communication skills and cheerful empathetic approach to assist with delivering a client orientated, rehabilitation focused care plan. Experience in Mental Health support would also be an advantage
