I am looking for a personable carer for my son  who is 36 years old and suffers from cerebral palsy.

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.
