Job Purpose

To support a Norwich based Mum with her 8-month-old child and helping around the house across 3 days, 9 hours per week.

Location: Norwich, NR6

Details

Your role will consist of supporting me with my son such as changing nappies and clothing and offering practical help while we are out of the house while shopping. I also require assistance around the house, maintaining the kitchen to a high standard and cleaning the bathroom. I may also require assistance with personal care such as showering and bathing.

Having had a stroke I have lost a lot of sensation in my left side and suffer weakness in that area, this has also led me to being quite fatigued at times. Having experienced this life changing event, I’m still an easy-going person who likes to go with the flow and would work well with someone with similar attributes plus a good sense of humour.
