About this opportunity
This man is proud of his appearance and of the way he looks. He is sociable but cautious and likes routines. He also loves a good chat and is approachable. For him it is very important to have good staff and takes time to trust new members of staff, although he will engage well and will try to get to know them.
The supported person does not like changes in his routine. He is fine with staff change the rota, but he wants to be aware of any changes ahead – otherwise he will get anxious. He generally dislikes unclear communication and people being late. He also gets confused with his medication, so it is important that staff are organised with that.
He uses a wheelchair, and requires minimal personal care.
A driving license would be preferable but not essential for this post.
