We are seeking 2 bubbly, fun, organised, and caring nurses to work with a delightful 32 year old man. He has an acquired brain injury and has been living in hospital for the past 4 years. It is now time for him to move home into a fully adapted apartment with a team of vibrant people around him. The accident has left 'D' being dependant for all of his personal care; he is non verbal and has no muscular control. However is making great progress with eye tracking, and through his continual hard work we hope to start introducing a My Tobii Eye Gaze computer in time. 'D's understanding appears to be very good; he is able to laugh and is very aware of whether someone has said or done something amusing. 'D' is a very intelligent and intellectual man whose interests include art, music, current affairs and he also has a wicked sense of humour - 'D' choice in comedy will soon rub off on anyone! Working with 'D' and his family would be an amazing opportunity to help continue his development as well as being able to 'hang out' with this endearing man. The hours will be based on 36.75 minimum per week, this equates to three 12 hour shifts with a 15 minute handover period. The shift pattern will have a mixture of day, night and weekend shifts. We need registered nurses who have recent experience of working with adults with acquired brain injuries. If you are motivated & would like to use your skills to enhance all aspects of 'D' daily living we would love to hear from you. For further information, see our website www.snapchildcare.co.uk
