We require a proactive and sensitive individual to join this wonderful team. Pre-interview calls are being booked now.

 

The Role:

 

J is a 26 year old man who sustained a Traumatic Brain Injury (ABI) following a road traffic accident 5 years ago. He has made a remarkable recovery thanks to his determination and strength, with support from his loving, dedicated family and expert therapy team.

J is able to direct his own support and enjoys very positive relationships with his team. He has a PEG for medication and fluids, but eats his meals and some fluids orally, so it is hoped that this will be removed at some point in the future.

J requires a waking night carer to join his team on a full-time, permanent basis. You will spend some evening time with J in his family room and then carry out his routine to prepare for bed.  You will assist J with all his personal and self-care needs, transfers and manual handling needs.

You will be proactive, positive and reliable and able to build a lasting relationship of trust with J, learn about his needs and follow his Care plan.   We are looking for reliable committed people with an empathetic attitude and passion for providing excellent care.

 

Experience working with a person who is rehabilitating after an injury is ideal but more important is your enthusiasm to support J to reach his goals, patience and willingness to learn, so please do apply even if you feel you have limited experience.
