About me

I am a 31 year old male living in the LS15 area suffering with a neuromuscular condition. This means I rely on a electric wheelchair for mobility. Also due to my mobility issues I require a ceiling track hoist.

Clinical care

On the clinical side of my care I require a NIPPV machine to assist with my breathing over night, I use a humidifier attached to my breathing equipment(NIPPV Machine) over night and as required at other points of the day. I require a cough assist which I use once or twice daily and as and when needed. In addition to this I use a nebuliser as and when required. I also have a suction machine for oral suction but do not use this regularly. I will advise when my equipment is needed.
Along side this I require full assistance with personal care, medications, food prep and eating. I enjoy a wide variety of foods and enjoy cooking so a basic knowledge of cooking would be helpful. All cleaning duties are expected to be completed by staff on a rota basis as I am unable to complete these tasks myself.

I am looking for support staff to enter my team who have a positive, fun approach to life but who can also maintain my home.

Social life, rotas and cover

I myself enjoy going out and this could be at any point of the day or night using my mobility vehicle, so I do require drivers only with a full clean license and the ability to drive a manual vehicle.

I hold my privacy in High regard. Confidentiality is  important to me.   

I require full time care due to my condition so I am looking for workers who can cover a variety of shifts which Include mornings, afternoon/evening and nights. This may also mean emergency cover and annual leave cover. Rotas are done in advance to allow stability for staff and myself.

Holidays

I also require assistance on trips away and holidays. These will be covered at my expense and be planned on staffs availibility and willingness to assist on these occasions.
