He loves music and especially likes singing and moving along to his favourite songs.

At home he enjoys engaging with his care team in sensory based activities such as messy play.

He is very sociable and enjoys opportunities to get out and about accessing the community, such as shopping, going to the café with friends and visiting the local park. Prior to lockdown restrictions he particularly enjoyed going swimming.

This is a personally rewarding role where you can deliver exceptional care and support to our service user, really making an impact on his day-to-day life.
