This is a new and exciting time for me, and I need you to be enthusiastic, with a positive outlook on life and have the ability to use proactive strategies effectively to support me to stay safe, build my independence and learn new skills to live a meaningful life in my own home. This position would require someone who is willing to take part in personal care and personal hygiene as I require support in this area as well as daily activities of care.

I enjoy being outdoors whatever the weather, therefore I need carers who are willing to engage outdoor activities with me. I like listening to music and watching TV when spending time indoors. I also have a good sense of humour so I would like my staff to share similar interests.
