Self employed Care Assistant.
Hi my name is John, I’m a sixty six year young man who at the age of four was struck down by polio. I’m now severely disabled and need assistance in all aspects of my care, both personal and domestic. You need to be fit as I’m very active. I have a good social life and will need you to accompany me on my ventures, this means you will need to be twenty five or over and have a clean license in order to drive my fully adapted car.
I will need help with bathing, have a colostomy bag, training can be given if you are inexperienced with this.
You will need to have high standards of cleanliness and be able to work unsupervised with the cleaning of my home.
Some cooking may be required.
An interest in gardening would be advantageous as I have a lovely garden and would require you to do some weeding and cutting back of foliage.
A liking for dogs, I have a small dog whom you would be required to walk with or without me and also to pick up after.
You will be required to fit into my existing team, currently I have three care assistants. Hours required are one twenty four hour shift, with a flexible approach, extra hours may be available. I have a spare room for you to use. An opportunity to join me on holidays abroad.
