About Me

My name is Zac, I am 4 years old and my Mum is looking for some excellent people to help look after me.  She can then sleep as well as do all the other things that Mum’s need to do.

I live with my mum and 4 siblings it is a very busy and fun house.  To work in our house, it is essential you have a sense of humour.

Due to my medical needs I need a lot of support both during the day and during the night.  There are a number of responsibilities that you will have when supporting me.  My care plan will go into more detail about my needs and full training will be given.

You will work under my mum’s direction to meet my needs and will be accountable to her in all aspects of your work.  You should always ask first what my needs are and should always listen to and act on her requests and directions.  You must be able to respect our family’s privacy and have an understanding of the need for confidentiality in all areas of your work.

I like to be active, I enjoy playing with my toys, music, singing, watching cartoons but must of all I love being outside, you will need to think of lots of activities to keep me interested and help my development.  The best bit of the job is that I enjoy lots of cuddles!

The main duties of the job are outlined in the Job Description.  However, because my needs vary on a day to day basis, it is extremely important that your approach to work is flexible.

You will be expected to carry out any other reasonable personal assistance tasks that I require.

Preferable: Have a recognised, accredited care qualification with children

Preferable: Have experience of tracheostomy care
