Mon/Tues/Wed – 07.30-18.30 (with some flexibility to occasionally start at 7.00 or finish at 19.00 but can also be flexible with early finishes if needed)

 

DUTIES

 

Our clients are looking for someone to look after their two boys before and after school, including the school run, and throughout the day in school holidays, to be available if either of them are off school and to support with light household duties including cleaning, laundry, meal prep, shopping for basics and collection of prescriptions/receiving deliveries. James (6) and Oliver (4), both in school during term time.

 

Oliver has significant additional needs with developmental delay and medical needs. He attends a specialist school in Witham. Ollie needs full support with transferring into specialist seating or a wheelchair buggy as well as with eating.

He is non-verbal and loves bright lights, musical toys and singing games.  Ollie has a gastrostomy (feeding tube) for water and medications and uses a Bipap ventilator (breathing mask) when he is sleeping.  He has occasional seizures that may require treatment or review in hospital.

 

The family would love someone with experience with children with additional needs, although also willing to provide training.  Over the next year, Ollie will be transitioning to using a hoist at home – they will need someone willing to be trained in manual handling in order to safely move Ollie around in the home.

James is in year 2 at school and loves lego, junk modelling, imaginative play and making concoctions in his mud kitchen!

 

Driver essential – they can provide the car for use with the boys.
