Job Description

Female live-in support worker needed to work with a 35-year-old female who likes watching tv, listening to music, going out shopping in Primark or secondhand shops looking for bargains or going out for dog walks in new places. She likes to visit craft fairs and when well enough, do crafts at home. She loves dragons and skulls and has a huge collection on show in her home.

The client has FND which is a functional neurological disorder. She has functional seizures, chronic migraine, chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia. She is waiting to be tested for autism. She is extremely sensitive to strong smells. She needs live-in support to help her with all aspects of personal care, to support with manual handling tasks, to support her when she has functional seizures, meal preparation, administer medication when needed and to take her out in my wheelchair-adapted vehicle to access the community. Excellent, personalised training is provided to give you knowledge and understanding of functional neurological disorders including epilepsy and sensory impairments alongside support from the client's family.

The ideal candidates will be female, someone who does not smoke or vape at all and will be willing to adhere to strict rules regarding perfumes, deodorant, detergents, and hair washing products and it would be desirable to be a car driver over the age of 25 with three points or under for insurance purposes and feel comfortable driving a wheelchair accessible vehicle.  But non-drivers can now be considered. 

You will be working alongside another colleague on a 2:1 basis for moving and handling tasks and personal care but also working on your own with me. It is important, therefore, that you are happy to work alongside another person. It is desirable to have six months to a year's live-in care experience and advantageous to have worked with a client with unpredictable needs or seizures. 

You will be required to work  4 weeks working, 2 weeks break, on a rolling rota. The weekly pay is £850. Whilst living in to support our client, accommodation is provided, free of charge.

If you are interested in applying, please send a covering letter and your CV or please ring the office on 03452415565 to request an application form.

(The position is subject to an enhanced DBS disclosure and is exempt from the provision of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974.

Please be advised that decisions regarding applications and employment are made in conjunction with our client. Therefore, applications will be shared with them for consideration.
