My 21 year old son is an upbeat and sociable young man who is looking for two people to join his support team.  He loves being around people whether this is direct interaction (he enjoys having his arms or head gently tickled and likes to return the favour and loves it when people chat with him) or simply people watching.  He has a mischievous sense of humour and likes to tease people when the moods takes him.

My son needs his Personal Assistants to be patient, calm and attentive but silly with it, a bit of silliness will always raise a smile.  My son does live with very complex health needs which means that he needs support with all aspects of daily living and someone with him 24/7 as he cannot move independently.

Training in all aspects of his support will be given as part of the role.  So a willingness to complete the necessary training is also important.  You must also be comfortable working in a home with dogs in residence.
