Sam is a lovely cheerful boy, born in 2012 who has cerebral palsy resulting in complex needs, he is very bright and can communicate verbally.  He lives at home with his parents and younger sister.  Sam enjoys reading, watching films, playing table top games and playing on his iPad. 

  

Sam is also looking for patient, caring and alert Waking Night Carers to support him throughout the night, as he needs to be monitored, reassured and repositioned when appropriate.  Sam’s nights can be quite disturbed requiring intervention between 2 - 4 times a night, however he can be easily settled once reassured. Sam needs assistance with all aspects of care including transfers and his personal hygiene during the night and his early morning routine, as he also needs help getting up in the morning and getting ready for school.  You may be required to provide assistance with the school run.

This is an excellent opportunity for dedicated carers to join Sam's care team and support this very special little boy. A truly rewarding role.
