I am a 21-year-old disabled man with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. I have severe muscle weakness in all areas which restricts all movement and requires the use of an electric wheelchair. I require assistance with all aspects of personal care (as required), getting out socially and at university (training given where needed).
The job will be varied as I live a full and busy life at times. I am looking for someone who is flexible (when needed), non-judgemental, able to be appropriately professional in a more informal environment and able to support me to live my life how I choose. The job can be hard at times but also fun.
