Scunthorpe, East of England
I am a 4-year-old little boy with complex health care needs and need full support with living my everyday life. I live at home with my mummy, brother and sisters. I was born prematurely therefore was poorly when I was born. I contracted a chronic lung disease. I also have Quadriplegic cerebral palsy which means my brain cannot get my body and limbs to move as they should. I am also recovering slowly from an acute and severe motor and sensory axonal neuropathy which basically means I have no movement expect very slight movement in my finger and a weakness in the muscles that work without me thinking about them, my breathing muscles. Therefore, I am fully dependent on my tracheostomy, ventilator and need support with suctioning. I am nil by mouth therefore I need full support with my PEG feeding and have a free drainage bag in place.
I am needing support for 2 nights a week 10pm-8am. I need full supervision throughout the night therefore I need someone to stay awake and supervise me. I will need full support with my tracheostomy, ventilator, suction, PEG feeding, gastrostomy care, personal care and medication.
Due to my needs, I ideally would like someone with complex care experience with children. I like people who are talkative and fun!
Full training will be provided.
