Robert, a caring gentleman with a lovely smile, was born in 1986. He really enjoys participating in leisure activities including snooker and darts, and also enjoys listening to his favourite bands (heavy metal) and attending music concerts, including cover bands, within his local area. He would also really like to be able to go walking in the countryside. He is looking for a support worker to help him enjoy all these activities on a regular basis.

Robert has short term memory affecting his ability to live independently and requires help and support with the domestic tasks of daily living; planning and organising his daily routine as well as being able to enjoy his hobbies and interests.  He has a very supportive family member and a small number of close friends who are very important to him.

Robert needs time to get to know people as he feels anxious around new people. Following a period of being mainly at home he is looking forward to having further support to help him to increase his confidence with re-engaging in his hobbies and accessing the community. 

This job would suit someone who is calm yet very proactive and able to bring lots of enthusiasm to the role. Someone who enjoys the same hobbies and music would be ideal.  You will be a lone worker but will have support and supervision provided by a Case Manager. This is wonderful opportunity to join a supportive family where you can make a real difference to Robert’s life by maximising his opportunities and promoting his independence wherever possible.
