Weekend work for Experienced Support Workers
We have a lady client in HERSTMONCEUX who requires additional members of staff to support her on Saturdays and Sundays.
You will work alongside another member of staff as our client needs 2 staff members at each visit.
Saturday shifts are 09.00 – 13.30 one week and 09.00 – 17.00 the next.
Sundays are 08.45 – 13.15.
Pay rates are Saturday £10.50 per hour and Sundays £11.28 per hour.
Our client is 35 and lives at home with mum and dad. She has learning disabilities and although unable to communicate verbally, she uses body language to get your attention. She is registered blind but can sense light and shadow.
She suffers from seizures and arthritis. Her mobility is limited and she uses a wheelchair for all outdoor activities.
Here are some things she likes to do:
I enjoy going to college with my carers once a week where I like to do ‘sensory courses’ like sensory cooking and flower arranging. Although I’m not so keen on the flower arranging!
I love going to the Viewcraft workshops for the blind in my village where I can do all sorts of crafts like papier mache and textured painting. I like it there as if it is very noisy there is a small room I can go to relax.
I like to go to the Sensory Centre in Lewes every Thursday where there is a sensory room with lights and sounds.
I also enjoy going in my hydro pool in my home. I like to do this every Saturday morning and in the college holidays, I will go some weekdays too.
I enjoy going shopping in Langney and having a hot chocolate in cafes. I enjoy going along the seafront – anywhere I can enjoy sensory experiences.
I love animals so visits to Raystede, Drusillas and Bentley wildfowl parks I like especially in college holidays when my college closes. I have membership cards for me and my carers to go to Drusilla, Sealife centre, Bentley Wildfowl park, Knockhatch, bowling at Hailsham.
Please contact us for further information if you or any of your friends/colleagues would be interested in this opportunity.
