About the Role
“I’m recruiting team members to help me get the best quality of life!
I live at home with my mum, who is my main carer, in Shieldhill. I am a happy and positive person. I enjoy a variety of activities with my support workers such as having my nails painted; being read to; singing; watching TV programmes such as DIY SOS, Countryfile and Undercover Boss; playing games such as Farm Bingo and Shopping List lotto; doing jigsaw puzzles; using my iPad to play games and going out in my wheelchair for short walks around my local area. Most of all, I really enjoy doing my daily exercises alongside my support worker.
I need people who have a positive attitude with a friendly and chatty nature. Adaptability and a drive to learn new things are essential as I have complex care needs including Type 1 Diabetes, a stoma, MS and an acquired brain injury which I will need you to support my mum in managing. Experience in any of these areas could be beneficial but is not required. It is best if you are a driver as public transport to my home is unreliable and infrequent.”
