About Me

My name is Fraser I am 18 years old.  I love hats and have a great collection, you will rarely see me without a hat on.  I have a keen interest in computers and science.

I am good at talking about my interests, I do need support to answer questions and make decisions.

We are looking for someone who can support me in daily living, social and personal care tasks as well as carrying out aspects of my physiotherapy programme.

I have Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and Autism and as a result of this need a lot of structured and tailored support in my daily life.

I use a power wheelchair and require the use of a hoist for my transfers.

Routine and advance planning are extremely important to me.

The role will involve supporting me, alongside another Personal Assistant or family member, inside the home and during activities outside.

A clean driving licence, experience or training in moving and handling and ASD is preferable but not essential.  It is more important we find the right person for the job.

The essential skills we are looking for are friendly, calm, patient and willing to learn.
