About the Employer

A Personal Assistant is required to help support a sociable teenage boy living in Nettleham, who has Down syndrome and autism.

Summary of Duties

You will be required to support him occasionally with some aspects of personal care, such as toileting and on occasion supervise with food.

You must have a full, clean driving license and access to your vehicle. Mileage will be paid.
