An opportunity has arisen to join an established 24/7 staff team to support me in all aspects of daily living.
Working in a friendly environment you will provide support in all aspects of personal care and daily living.
I use a power wheelchair and require the use of a hoist for transfers.
Ideally I am looking for someone with previous experience but training will be given.
You must be able to drive and will be required to drive my motability car.
Due to insurance requirements you must be over 25 with a clean driving licence.
A key part of the role will be to accompany me to Sunderland Royal Hospital, whilst there you will have two hours where discreet support will be required, being on hand should I need you. This part of the role would be well suited to someone studying.
