NURSES AND CARERS
Our client S` is a 17 year old young man and whilst he has considerable care needs, has the most wonderful personality and sense of humour. He is wheelchair dependent and requires fully assisted 24 hour care, which includes feeding via a naso gastric tube, regular airway suction and the management of very sever seizures when these occur. At all times S` has a nurse and carer working together. Whilst unable to verbalise his communication S` is very able in making himself understood through signs and noises. He currently resides within a beautiful, spacious family home in his own annexe.
During term time S` attends a specialist school accompanied by his on duty team. At weekends and in school holidays he enjoys going out in his car and people watching`, you should therefore be able to drive.
