Personal Assistant - Job Ref PIP-CMCL

Location: Irvine

Hours:     16hrs per week 

Pay:         £11.00 - £11.50 p/h

I am 26 and live at home with my family. I am a cheeky, likeable young man who likes his own way & can get stuck in the same routine. I like to be out and about using public transport with trips to Ayr, Glasgow and Edinburgh. I like to visit my favourite places for a wander round the shops and a plate of chips with an occasional chocolate doughnut or yum-yum from Greggs. I love my iPad and wee stories. 

 

I have Autism with a severe/complex learning disability and need lots of reassurance and reminders of what’s happening next. I am non verbal so I may display challenging behaviour when upset. I need staff who are willing to learn and engage with me.

You will be responsible for keeping me safe in the community, washing/dressing & making my dinner.
