We are really proud of the special care and support we provide to our customers and how we deliver an 'outstanding' service. Because it's so important for us to make a difference to people's lives, we are now seeking additional Support Workers to assist a Gentleman who lives in a Specialist Residential service just outside of central Taunton. This 44 year old gentleman is living with an acquired brain and spinal cord injury, and would like someone to work with him on a 1:1 basis to support him to manage his behaviours and physical health:
"I enjoy smoking cigarettes and having a coffee, I am often watching some good horror and action movies in my spare time, and it's really important that I am enabled, empowered, and maintain my access to the community! I especially enjoy going to Exeter and Exmouth to visit family and friends, so you will need a driving licence and to be over 25 to drive my vehicle!"
If you feel you could support this customer and help him to gain some independence, please do not hesitate to apply or call 01823 448321 for a chat!
