Job Purpose
This provides an opportunity to assist a gentleman with day to day duties as a live-in carer required on a 2 week on - 2 week off basis. This gentleman has suffered a brain injury in 2012, which has led to paralysis and also has arthritis in both knees and a crumbling vertebra. In turn he suffers from both depression and anxiety at times.   

This gentleman requires help with all aspects of personal care, help decide what he would like to wear, support with shopping and administrating of medication.  A patient and understanding manner will be required as he can only answer questions with a ‘yes’ or ‘no’.  As you would expect as a live-in carer this role also entails maintaining the household to a standard of cleanliness and undertaking all domestic tasks. This gentleman would like a choice of daily meals and meal times will be taken together.  

The Gentleman has an interest in visiting air shows and keeping tropical fish. Sci-fi, thriller and comedy films suit him but not a rom-com!  History documentaries and Formula One are other interests.
