About this client:
Seb, 11, is a bright and engaging child. He has cerebral palsy and developmental delay which affects him physically. Seb uses Eye Gaze to support his communication. He is fed and has his medication administered via a gastrostomy and is completely dependent on others for all of his personal care, feeding, and mobilisation. Seb is looking for a kind and sensitive waking night carer to join his established home care team and provide 1:1 support during the night.
Overview of role:
Seb requires assistance with repositioning, preparing puréed feeds for his gastrostomy, and undertaking all of his personal care. He can be unpredictable and experience discomfort during the night, finding it difficult to get back to sleep, meaning his day can begin as early as 5am. Seb is observed via a monitor in the next room. This position also includes supporting Seb with his morning routine. Other duties will include tending to Seb’s laundry, batch cooking, preparing medications, stock checks, and washing syringes.
Who this job would suit:
Seb is looking for a confident, proactive, and experienced waking night carer who has previous experience caring for a young client with complex care needs. This is a permanent role, so we are looking for a long-term commitment.
