About this client/child: Adam (9), lives at home with his Mum, Dad, Sister (1½) and grandparents. Adam is a very active, loving and extremely happy boy. He loves to swim, play, go out for walks, attend school, go bowling, go out for hot choc and loves music and dancing. Adam loves having someone to mess around and be silly with and generally enjoys interacting with others. Adam currently attends an SEN School, swimming lessons, horse riding, intense physiotherapy session and will at some point soon be adding SLT, OT, Dietician and Hydrotherapy to his agenda too. Adam dislikes loud noises and places with too many people but has enjoyed going to the Theatre to see ‘Justin’s House’ and to the Butterfly farm. Adam has Cerebral Palsy, Global developmental delay, and epilepsy, although this is controlled with medication. Adam can walk short distances with support and uses a buggy for going out. His speech and understanding are significantly delayed, and he can often shout or scream to vocalise and has little understanding of communication directed at him.
Overview of role: We are recruiting two weekend Family Support Workers to support Adam and his family to enjoy each busy day. Adam’s Grandpa has early stages of Alzheimer’s and so requires understanding, empathy, and support too. While your focus will be on supporting Adam, at times you will help look after Adam’s little sister or carry out some general housework required to relieve his parents and give them time with their children, such as laundry and light housekeeping. The family employs a weekly cleaner. Adam needs full assistance with dressing, toileting, changing, preparing food, drinks, and feeding, as well as planning, supervising, and supporting all therapies, activities, bath time, play time and outings. There may be times when Adam’s home will be busy with family and friends’ gatherings, so someone comfortable with this and willing to muck in would be a great help. Two roles are available, either 7.00am to 2.00pm, or 2.00pm to 9.00pm, Saturday and Sunday. £17.00 gross per hour
