We are currently recruiting for an experienced candidate to assist an able bodied young man who is in recovery from a chronic illness. The treatment plan is ongoing and his eldest sister is involved with the whole medical team & practitioners to help ensure his continued recovery. The illness is in part an inflammatory disorder which results in stomach issues and some anxiety. He has improved significantly in the past 18 months but is still housebound. The aim is for the carer to take over from the sister to some extent and, most importantly, to connect with and build a strong relationship with her brother. You will become a companion, to maximize his recovery process and to provide emotional support to him. He does receive regular visits from family and friends.
This is a great opportunity for someone looking to: further knowledge in interesting, frontier areas of medicine and care, such as neuro-immunology; to be part of an excellent team; and to provide hope, friendship and stability to the young gentleman. Personal care support is not a requirement of this role.
It would be really nice if….
It is crucial to be proactive and engaged in your approach. We need someone who will listen to and chat with the young man, hopefully to become friends, to research medical advancements that may aid his condition and ensure that the best treatment is provided at all times.
