Brief description

An exciting opportunity for enthusiastic individuals to complete a new team, providing support to enable a man with a brain injury to live in his own home for the first time.

The support team will be integral to the wider team of rehabilitation therapists and other professionals enabling him to increase his independence at home and in the community in social, leisure and voluntary activities. Minimal to no personal care involved.

The client enjoys getting out and about in the community, socialising, playing dominoes. He is interested in science fiction programmes/magazines.

JSP is not an agency. Recruitment of staff for small, personalised care teams is part of our case management service and is undertaken on behalf of individuals using this service.


Requirements

A caring attitude, good sense of humour and a desire to enable the client to achieve his goals is essential. Excellent communication skills and an enthusiasm for learning, in order to progress specialist rehabilitation strategies.

Experience of working with clients with a brain injury is desirable, however specialist training and supervision will be given.

A full driving licence is essential.  Support staff will drive the client’s vehicle during support hours.
