Kisharon Adult Services, NW London: Wellbeing Support Workers

Yair

“Our son is a lovely, generally happy and healthy 20 year old with very severe learning difficulties and a great giggle! He cannot speak, but he understands some words.  We are looking to build a Wellbeing team of people to help him in his supported living in his own flat in Hendon.

We are looking for dependable people with imagination, energy, patience and a sense of fun. We are looking for people who can help our son have fun and also learn new skills. He has loads of physical energy and loves to work out at in a gym.  He also loves food and will help to prepare it as well as eating it amazingly quickly!

We need to recruit people who can work together in a team.  We need people to work together to provide consistency for our son so that he will have a calm, ordered and learning environment.  As our son is non-verbal it would be great if at least one of his team knew Makaton sign language, but if you don’t know it, we can easily teach you the few signs that you need to know.  It would also be good if someone on the team could drive as our son has his own car and loves to be taken out for drives and to college in N16.”

Could this be you?
