Our client is a very sociable family man in his early 60’s, with a great sense of humour.  His wife, family and cats are all very important to him and he really enjoys a chat and a cup of tea, along with social interaction including attending quiz nights at his local pub and Headway (the local Brain Injury Association).  Our client also enjoys his physiotherapy and hydrotherapy.  

 

Due to an injury at work, our client has sustained an acquired brain injury and has no or weak movement on his left side with loss of sensation.  He requires assistance with all tasks, which includes personal care, washing and dressing as well as transfers.  He also requires assistance due to visual problems.  He walks with the aid of a stick or walking frame, with the assistance of a support worker, and other times he will need to be pushed in his manual wheelchair.

This job will suit someone who is calm but very proactive and able to bring lots of enthusiasm to the role.  It is a wonderful opportunity to join a supportive family and care team where you can make a real difference to our client's life by maximising his opportunities and promoting his independence wherever possible.
