Our client enjoys sensory play, she enjoys cooking with family and going out to places such as Trentham Gardens. She also enjoys swimming and rebound (trampolining for disabled children). She currently takes part in these activities at school.
This package of care is new and it is to help out Mom and Step-Mom as they have a younger child, therefore want the carer to be able to support our client in the morning to get ready for school and after school and get her ready for bed.
Weekend care will initially be alongside Mom and then when they are confident they have access to our client's mobility vehicle to take her out.

Monday - Friday 7am - 9am
Monday - Friday 2:30pm - 5:30pm
Saturday - 10am - 4pm (currently covered but may be required to cover holidays)

School holiday hours would be flexible times to help Mom, they could even do 2 long days for the hours or shortened days of 6 hour blocks.

We provide a comprehensive clinical training and induction programme, overseen by professional nurses, to ensure you have the skills and confidence to succeed in your role working as a Care Worker in the Specialist Team. We are looking for people who have excellent people skills, are great communicators and can work effectively in a team as well as independently.
