Contract Type
Man with profound sight and hearing loss looking to employ an additional support worker to assist in respect of the dual sensory impairment.

This is a Personal Assistant role

with varied responsibilities. The employer is "deafblind", having virtually no useful sight or hearing. Other than that, however, the employer is healthy and independent, able to manage his own affairs like anyone else. This post is about enabling the employer to function by providing the feedback normally provided through sight and hearing, communicating via the deafblind manual alphabet and guiding (full training available). It is not a "carer" role, but an interactive one.

2 posts available. From 16 to 19 hours a week or from 5 to 8 hours a week with extra hours possibly available as the need arises in both cases. Alternative hours will be considered.
GBP10.60/hour minimum. Flexible hours by mutually convenient arrangement.
