I’m a 21-year-old young man with cerebral palsy and epilepsy, I have my own adapted property in Pontardulais where I live with my family, am a wheelchair user and use a hoist for all transfers. I enjoy the company of others and people say I have a cheeky grin! I need waking support at night, and you will need to ensure my oxygen machine is working correctly throughout the night.
I like spending time in my garden, using my hydro pool and going to the ski centre in Pembrey. I have a season ticket for my favourite football team, Swansea, but I’ve not been to watch them for a while and would like to do this with your support. I’ve enjoyed many holidays in the past and would like to plan some further short breaks away.
My complex physical difficulties mean I’m unable to communicate verbally but I’ve developed different ways to communicate to get my needs met. I would like my support workers to be warm, patient, and reliable, to encourage and support me to access all opportunities and help me to maximise my quality of life. You will play a key part in helping ensure my care needs are met whilst helping to develop my day-to-day activities.
As a Team Leader, you will have the abilities to lead my support team by being organised at managing paperwork, ensuring staff rotas are up to date alongside supervising and appraising the care team. You will be professional and communicate effectively with my therapists and family members and advocate on my behalf. You will be expected to contribute to plans and risk assessments necessary for safe care to be delivered, ensuring these are up to date and reviewed on time.
