Seeking experienced and respectful Support Workers in Llanmorlais, Swansea
Dimensions are proud to have been chosen to provide the support for two rather incredible gentlemen in Llanmorlais, Swansea.
We are building a new team of support workers, who have experience of supporting people who can have complex emotional responses. It is essential that you are able work with the utmost respect, integrity and compassion and crucially, that you understand how important it is to work closely with your colleagues, our external partners and families.
M and P live in a two story home, with an annexe, and lovely gardens to both the front and the rear of the property. Positioned just by the Loughor estuary, there are beautiful local walks, pubs and shops all within walking distance.
M is a 34 year old gentleman with a mild Learning Disability, autism and ADHD, who enjoys physical activities and also relaxing at home. He has a keen interest in old car restoration, so if you are handy with a spanner, all the better! M needs you to be patient and empathic as he needs you to understand that he requires time to process, and make sense of information, and his surroundings. He will also need your gentle encouragement to manage a healthy diet. M has a delightful sense of humour, is known to be mischievous and thrives on making you laugh. M enjoys a very close relationship with his parents. He will be delighted if you share his passion for watching sport and playing the Xbox!
P is a 46 year old gentleman, with Smith-Magenis Syndrome, diabetes, and a hearing impediment and uses both words and signing to communicate with those around him. He very much enjoys his karaoke machine – so if you can hold a tune (or not!!) you will fit in a treat! P prefers to communicate using short sentences, signs and gestures. He is generally happy and sociable and has a very close relationship with his brother. At times, P does need to enjoy the calming solitude of his own company and will communicate this to you if he is feeling the need for some down time.
To become part of M and P’s support team, you will need to be able to demonstrate:
