ABOUT THE ROLE

We are looking for female* Support Workers who are non-smokers to join our team to care for a 13 year old girl with complex physical and learning needs in her family home in permanent roles.  A full, clean UK driver’s licence is essential.

H enjoys the company of happy, lively people with outgoing personalities. She has a fantastic sense of humour, loves being out in the community and playing with her siblings and joins in all activities connected with family life.

H is non-verbal with sensory impairments. She is fed via a gastrostomy and uses a combination of facial expressions, symbols and some eye pointing to communicate and is exploring eye gaze.

ABOUT YOU

H’s support workers must have a positive outlook, and be willing to train and learn about H’s particular needs.

You will be punctual, respectful of working in a family home and environment and have experience working with a child with complex needs.  Personal care is required, administration of medication, carrying out therapy plans and accurate record keeping.

A high level of care is required by our team of support workers during the day and especially at night as H frequently wakes and has an unpredictable sleep pattern.  She uses CPAP to support her respiration at night and needs attention for gastrostomy and fluid intake.
