Male PA required for 18 year old with learning difficulties - Leeds - LS1
Job Reference (22d1f950)

Thank you for reading our advert.
James is 18 years old and has learning difficulties. He is fully mobile and communicates really well. He has problems with behaviour and lacks life skills but also has a friendly and loving side as well as a good sense of humour once he gets to know you. His behaviour problems means he can become easily frustrated and distracted and can show signs of anger such as swearing. The reason for our advert is we honestly need someone who can help James relate better to the world and people around him and develop his social skills by taking him out during the summer holidays and at weekends and becoming someone he can see as a friend and can talk to as he lacks friends and hobbies. We have 48 hours a month available to use flexibly and can include overnights if available. James has previously had a PA who worked with him for 10 years but has had to stop due to starting her own family.
James enjoys going out, fishing, food!!, listening to music, cars, and occasional walks. He needs encouraging to exercise but does enjoy football. We would ideally like someone who is quite outgoing and will encourage James to try new activities he may not have done before. He lives with His mum, dad, sister and 3 dogs. He attends a specialist school which he will continue to attend for the next year.
James requires a lot of patience and understanding as he can be very indecisive but needs somebody who can support him whilst also being confident and tough with him if needed. 
We need to try and help James develop and gain some confidence now before he finishes school. 
If you feel you can help please reply to this advert.
