Job Description

Live in Carer/Live support worker/Live in PA Earning £850pw

I am a 35-year-old female who likes watching tv, listening to music, going out shopping in Primark or secondhand shops looking for bargains or going out for dog walks in new places. I like to visit craft fairs and when well enough enjoy doing crafts at home. I love dragons and skulls have a huge collection on show.

I have FND which is a functional neurological disorder, I have functional seizures, chronic migraine, chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia. I am waiting to be tested for autism. I am extremely sensitive to strong smells. I need 24/7 live-in support to help me with all aspects of personal care, to support with manual handling tasks, to support me when I have functional seizures, to prepare my meals, to give me my medication when needed and to take me out in my wheelchair adapted vehicle when I am well enough.

The successful candidates must be patient, trustworthy, conscientious, and genuinely interested in supporting me to live my life the best way I can. You should be fun and chatty to be around, but also able to be quiet and calm when needed. I take time to be able to trust people and feel comfortable with them, especially with personal care tasks. The ideal candidates will have excellent communication skills and be fluent in written and spoken English, as I lose the ability to speak on a daily basis at some points in the day and also because the post requires making telephone calls, writing letters, and communicating on my behalf. You must be living in the UK and be eligible to work in the UK.

The ideal candidates will be female, someone who does not smoke or vape at all and will be willing to adhere to strict rules regarding perfumes, deodorant, detergents, and hair washing products and should be car drivers over the age of 25 with three points or under for insurance purposes and feel comfortable driving a wheelchair accessible vehicle.

The rota will be 4 weeks on and two weeks off. An enhanced DBS will be required for the role.

If interested please email a covering letter and CV.
