About the Employer

I am an easy-going young male that lives with my parents and siblings. I am non-verbal although can communicate via Makaton. My interests are cars, going outside and puddles. I require a Personal Assistant to provide me with social support. Ensure my medicine bag is on me when leaving the house as I suffer from seizures which are controlled. It is important that my oral Buccolam is in this bag. I am not very aware of danger so you will need to support me with this whilst we are walking. I can run when in large open spaces such as a park so please keep an eye on me when we are in these situations. I am also incontinent so monitoring my toilet needs and changing pads is required.

PLEASE NOTE MUST OWN A CAR WITH FULL DRIVING LICENCE AND BUSNIESS CLASS INSURANCE
