About the Role
“Hi, I am looking for people to join my team! I live independently in my own home. I have a physical disability which requires me to use a hoist to transfer me in and out of bed. I have a sarcastic sense of humour and I like when people share the same sense of humour as me. I'm looking for someone who can support me in my evening routine on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays. This will only be an hour of support and it's 8.45-9.45pm on each of those days”.
