I am looking for a personable carer for my son who is 36 years old and suffers from cerebral palsy. He is a good communicator with a good sense of humour and is passionate about football and loves to participate with friends playing pool and dominoes. He needs to be warm at all times and cannot be outside in very windy weather. Some personal care will be required e.g. general hand and foot care, shaving and being assisted to the barber’s at least once every 6 weeks.
Someone who drives is essential, ideally who lives close to Whitburn who can help explore the possibilities of future activities e.g. walking football which take place in Newcastle.
The successful applicant will require a DBS check and be able to get on well with Roger who is our rescue cat.
Closing date: 5th October 2021
