Apollo Home Healthcare is seeking experienced Support Workers to support a young male with his care needs.

We are looking for dedicated and compassionate Support Workers who are passionate about their job, enjoy delivering one to one support and who can build positive relationships with our service users and their families.

Our service user is a loving young male, who lives with his Dad in Newton Le Willows.

Due to his condition, routine is very important to him. You will have access to his daily schedule which is to be understood and followed by his team and family.

You will be meeting his social & personal care needs and transporting him to and from his educational setting during the week.

He is an affectionate young man who enjoys lots of attention. He requires engaging individuals who are happy to get involved in the things he enjoys such as, playing with sensory toys, baking and going for long walks.

He is unable to communicate verbally and does so via picture cards. He will use these to indicate his feelings, wants and needs and it is important that you can interpret his wants and needs to avoid him becoming distressed or frustrated.

It is essential that you have experience in Autism and have a positive, encouraging, and calm nature.
