Would you like to join a small team of friendly carers who look after our delightful adult son who has Dravet Syndrome? He has complex learning difficulties, needs personal care, and is taken out every day into the community with 2:1 staffing.
The post will need to be flexible, with some day shifts (10.00am to 5.30pm); a waking night (10.00pm to 8.00am – paid at a higher rate); and a weekend breakfast (8.00am to 10.00am – paid at weekend rate). You will work primarily as a carer (Care Practitioner), and all being well develop the role over time to take on leadership and management responsibilities.
Training is provided for Autism, Epilepsy, Intensive Interaction, and Leadership & Management.
We are looking for someone who is emotionally mature, fit and healthy (as our son can be very active and ‘swims’ regularly), over 21, a driver, and a non-smoker.
You will need to show a level of commitment, to give the necessary time to get to know and understand our son (whose needs are complex).
The RG Trust is funded and regulated by NHS Continuing Heathcare.
Nimber is a community delivery service that matches items being sent with travellers going the same way. You post what you'd like to buy, and we notify bringers who travel that route. When someone can help they will make you an offer.
Once you receive an offer, arrange pickup and delivery times with the bringer, accept the offer and wait for your items to arrive at your door.
Your card is never charged until your item has been successfully delivered, and there is no cost for posting a request.
