Ref: PM/(KBRB)

 

Our client doesn’t let his ABI stop his sense of fun and enjoying his hobbies such as reading comics, quizzes, geeky technology and 80’s music. He is looking for a support worker that has similar interests who can support him in all aspects of his care. If you enjoy making a real difference to someone’s life, we look forward to hearing from you.

 

Our Client & the Role:

P is looking for a one-to-one support worker to help encourage him to lead as full a life as possible. The role requires personal/stoma care, assistance with preparing meals, vigilance whilst P is eating/walking and manual handling when P is using his wheelchair. P suffers physical difficulties and although able to feel pain he cannot express this verbally, pain presents as a low mood or frustration so as his support worker you need to be constantly aware of when he may be in discomfort, not only when giving personal care. You should also be vigilant in all aspects of health and safety in any given environment.

 

P’s mood can become quite low at times and is accompanied by anxiety, non-physical anger and frustration, his moods seem to be exacerbated by feeling dependent on others or when he is not in control of a given situation. It is important for the support worker to manage P’s environment to minimise these low moods, employ measures to try to lift his moods whilst also knowing when he needs to be given space.

 

P has dysarthria which reduces his ability to communicate clearly, therefore his support worker needs to be clearly spoken, patient and work with P to discover what he is trying to communicate without increasing his frustration or making him feel misunderstood. They will be mindful of his memory lapses and inability to sometimes express what he is trying to say.

 

The support worker will need to create structure in P’s daily routine, involving P in decisions without allowing him to be overwhelmed by choice.

About You:

You will be a driver who is happy to take our client out for visits in the community using his adapted manual van.

 

Ideally you will have an interest in some of P’s hobbies, but a sense of humour is a must and the ability to be able to ‘banter’ with P whilst not taking yourself too seriously would be a perfect fit for him.

 

You will ideally have two years’ experience supporting someone with an ABI and proven experience in managing behaviours associated with an ABI. You will be patient and understand the limitations P has. If you have less experience then please do still apply as aptitude and a willingness to undertake the training that will be provided is also key to this role.

 

You will be able to follow P’s Care plan and be organised to ensure that you provide a structured daily routine. You will be motivational and encourage P to achieve his full potential.

 

You will be able to cook as meal preparation is required. You will encourage P to undertake light household tasks including shopping and accompanying him in visiting restaurants and coffee shops and chatting with members of the community.

 

You will be an animal lover and happy to accompany P on daily walks and assist with the care of his lovely, if somewhat vocal, family dog.

Pay:

£16 per hour weekdays

£18 per hour weekends/bank holidays

 

Hours/Shifts:

3 x 12 hour shifts 8:00 am to 8:00 pm

He is looking for an equally active social worker who would love to support him attending these activities and in his personal care/life - if you are an Arsenal fan well, that’s an added bonus!

 

The Role:

Our client is a 32-year-old man with an Acquired Brain Injury incurred at birth, he also has Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy/Ataxia which affects his muscles and movements so he would need assistance with holding cutlery and whilst eating.

He is a wheelchair user so handling and hoisting will be part of the role.

 

Our client likes to be independent and make his own choices of where to go, what to eat and what to wear. You will support him in making choices in these areas whilst ensuring that choices are limited in order not to overwhelm him.

 

Working alongside a supportive care team, this role would be to provide full support to our client in all areas of his life including full personal care, making sure he looks his best (our client is a very smart dresser), personal admin, cooking, accompanying him to his various activities and ensuring that he follows his care plan to reach his therapy goals.

You will be kind, positive and reliable with a sociable personality who will proactively encourage our client in both his chosen hobbies and others which he might find of interest.

 

Our client does not feel pain so you will need to remain constantly vigilant throughout your shift to ensure our client’s wellbeing and safety and ensure that the correct medication and any pain relief/first aid required is given in a timely manner. You will work with our client and his therapists, following his Care plan, to help him achieve his rehabilitation goals.

As you would expect from a typically energetic 11-year-old, our client has a wide range of hobbies and his leisure time is spent playing board and computer games, doing puzzles and being creative with Lego.  He also loves trampolining and basketball, so an equally energetic Enabler is sought to bring fun, organisation and structure to his daily routine.

 

The Role:

Our client has an Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) which has left him with cerebral visual impairment and is registered partially sighted due to the loss of his right eye. He has left side weakness and some auditory processing issues.  He lives with his parents and siblings and attends school 4 days a week during term time, he doesn’t attend school on a Wednesday when he either rests or attends hospital appointments. 

 

He is looking for an Enabler to provide support after school and in school holidays to carrying out activities with him such as physiotherapy exercises, Occupational Therapy, helping with homework, taking the dog for a walk and playing games.  Our client becomes fatigued easily as a result of his brain injury and needs lots of rest time built into his afternoon so you will be vigilant in monitoring his fatigue levels and ensuring that his environment is free from trip hazards. During his times of rest, you will be asked to undertake some light housework – e.g., tidying up or emptying the dish washer. Full training in all aspects of our client’s support needs will be given by his therapists and you will be supported by his Case Manager.

 

About You:

You will support our client by following his support plan and helping to implement his therapy programme and you will be a part of the wider multi-disciplinary team that supports him.

Our very active client has a passion for music and would love to visit every Hard Rock Café, an exciting goal to have, could you help him achieve this? Along with playing football for his local league, he loves swimming and working out in his home gym and his love of animals will mean you get to join him on regular walks with his family dogs. His ideal Support Worker would share a love of these hobbies but most importantly you should be a kind, positive individual who loves frequent days out. If you think you would be a good fit, get in touch, interviews are being booked shortly.

 

The Role:

Our client is a 27-year-old man with an Acquired Brain Injury incurred at birth. He has reduced vision which impacts on his daily life so you would need to be constantly vigilant to ensure his safety. He has cognitive difficulties and can experience acute anxiety and fatigue; this would need to be managed closely by his Support Worker. Our client is verbal and fully mobile, through the support of his larger support team, he is able to live on his own and mostly take care of his personal regime. 

 

About You:

You will provide a supportive and energetic approach to our client by following his Care plan and helping him achieve his rehabilitation goals. You will be kind, positive and reliable with a good sense of humour and the ability to think on your feet.

 

You will enjoy the company of animals as our client has a tortoise and sometimes looks after family members’ dogs with whom he enjoys walking. 

 

If you have experience supporting someone with an Acquired Brain Injury this would be advantageous but please do apply even if you don’t have experience as full training will be provided.  

 

You will be happy to join our client on days out and family holidays.

 

You will need to be a driver as you may take our client out in his own automatic car.

Pay:

Day hours - £14 per hour weekdays, £16 per hour weekends/bank holidays (rates will be slightly reduced during probationary period). 

Night shifts: Sleeping nights are paid at National Minimum Wage per hour (currently £6.56 to £8.91 depending on your age).  You will rarely be disturbed by our client at night but if you are awake will be paid for those hours at day rates as above.

 

Hours/Shifts:

Fortnightly rotas are planned well in advance.

 

A 24 hour shift pattern is preferred however, other shifts can be offered with the minimum shift being 8 hours - e.g. 08:00 to 16:00 or 12:00 to 20:00.  There is also the possibility of a 12 hour shift 20:00 to 08:00

 

Day rate would be applied for shifts  08:00 – 23:00

Night rate would be applied for shifts 23:00 – 08:00 as shown above

 

There may be an opportunity to work extra hours if cover is required or for days out/holidays which are quite frequent.
