Part time PA Required, Weekday afternoons / weekends / school holidays
We are looking for a reliable, trustworthy and caring PA to assist our son who is a happy, outgoing young adult who enjoys socialising and meeting new people. He loves animals, sea creatures, car rides, train rides, transport of all kinds, Drusillas zoo, Brooklands bike track & Pedal People bikes in Brighton etc. Ideally we’d be keen for him to be more active and out & about during his sessions.
He is non-verbal, needs help with all personal care, and requires 1 to 1 supervision at all times. He has multiple learning difficulties, and epilepsy controlled through medication (PA would only be required to give medication in emergency - protocol would be in place & training would be provided).
He has a wheelchair when out & about, although we encourage and give him the opportunity to walk as much as possible. He communicates using some Makaton and has a talking ipad (using Proloquo2go), he is very resourceful at making himself understood.
Ideally his PA would need to have their own transport (mileage expenses will be covered). Applicants without transport considered if confident to accompany our son on public transport.
