Female Personal Assistant Vacancies as part of a 24/7 Team supporting a teenager
M is a delightful, fun-loving and active teenager. She especially enjoys meeting her friends, bowling, cinema, swimming and going to the theatre.
M has complex needs resulting from autism and learning disabilities. She can present with high levels of anxiety and challenging behaviour. In order to remain regulated and safe M requires 2-1 support throughout the day and a waking night.
M and her family are shortly moving to a new house which will provide M with her own living space and an office/overnight room for the team, whilst retaining some shared family areas.
Continuity of care and a team of familiar care givers is vital for M’s wellbeing, and to help her achieve her potential. We have a core team throughout the year, and some occasional staff during holidays.
We are now looking for candidates who have the requisite skills and experience to support M’s needs and become part of her core team.
