I am a young lady in my 20s living in the Margam area with my family. I am blind, have a brain injury and I am paraplegic. I am bright and bubbly with a sunny personality and love all kinds of activities including music, games, computers and arts and crafts.
I like it when my personal assistants continuously interact and stimulate me by encouraging me to stretch my boundaries and explore the world. They should have an empathetic and caring attitude and a warm and friendly approach as I like working with positive and bubbly people. You'll be part of a team of personal assistants so you'll always be working with my mum, my sister or another PA.
I have a compromised immune system so I may ask you to stay away if you are even if it's just a minor cold.
Assisting with eating.
Providing stimulation via activities.
Participating in range of motion activities to maintain mobility (training provided by a Physiotherapist).
Encouraging speech and interaction, communication via touch etc.
17 hours a week split over two shifts.
Days can vary but will always be agreed in advance
Some flexibility is required as cover hours will be offered from time to time. Occasional weekend working.
