Job description
Listed below are details of the purpose of the job and what tasks are involved. It is important and advisable to refer to this when submitting your application for the post.
Job Purpose: I’m a 41 year old married mum of two teenage boys, we have a dog and cat, and I take great pride in my home. I have a complex medical history resulting from bowel cancer, Crohn’s disease, a bone condition, anxiety, depression and OCD. As these conditions impact on my mobility, make me tired and weak, and cause me to wear a stoma bag, I would like your support with personal care, domestic tasks and getting out and about.
 
Location: Hevingham.
Details: 
·      Providing personal care including showering and washing my hair.
·      Domestic support such as making the beds, tidying dishes away, hoovering, washing floors, putting rubbish out, emptying the washing machine and hanging washing out or putting in the dryer. I would leave you a list each morning of the jobs I would like you to do.
·      Meal preparation, EG. Peeling potatoes and vegetables ready to be cooked, put ingredients together and pop a casserole in the oven.
·      Before you leave, ensure I have a drink and something to eat if desired.
·      Take me out, maybe to a garden centre or supermarket and either push me round in my wheelchair or assist me to walk with the support of a trolley.

·      Support me to attend appointments.

N.B. – Your interview will be conducted via telephone, however you will need to be considerate, as I find phone calls difficult due to my health condition.
