I am a single lady living in my own home with 24-hour support from a close knit, friendly team. I have Cerebral Palsy which means I rely on staff to be my hands. I am chatty and enjoy a full social life which keeps me and my team busy. I am looking for a support worker who can fit nicely into our team so you will need to be sociable and cheery.
Preparation and cooking of some meals
Hobbies and social activities
Supporting me at various events
Other small jobs
You will need basic maths and literacy knowledge, basic IT skills will also be an advantage. Previous experience of similar work is desirable but not essential, as I will make sure you get the training you need.
You will have both basic cookery and gardening skills and be willing to attend any training needed e.g. first aid, moving and positioning etc.
You must be able to understand the importance of confidentiality and kindness and be flexible, patient and calm. You will need to be physically fit enough to undertake any manual handling needed.
A good attitude to independence is important to understand a disabled person and their choices
Teamwork is important as well as being able to work on your own initiative and have some flexibility to allow for holiday or sickness cover.
You will be required to drive my vehicle which is an automatic and I therefore need PA’s to have a full clean drivers’ licence and inform me should this change.
About Direct Payments
Direct payments are available from Local Authorities for people who have a care and support plan in place following a social care assessment. An amount of money is allocated to purchase the assistance and care needed to live independently.
I should stress that I will be your employer and have full responsibility for recruitment, contracts, supervision, pay, training etc. A support service assists me in meeting my responsibilities as an employer.
Salary: This is a flat rate of pay that takes account of unsociable hours and weekend working.
Hours: These are the minimally contracted hours. If I require additional support at other times I will try to give as much notice as possible, an ability to be flexible would be an advantage
