Urgent support required. We are looking for Health Care Workers to support a young boy called Zac. Zac has a rare cardiac condition and requires 24/7 care and support. You will be always supported by a Nurse or another experienced support worker.

About Zac

My name is Zac, I am 7 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 have 4 siblings and our house is a very busy and fun 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 and emergency 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.

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!
