Our client is a confident, bright and vivacious young lady who requires no personal care, but there will be a small element of general assistance around her home environment and to assist in her rehabilitation.
An ability to empathise with our client’s situation whilst maintaining a professional outlook; coupled with a positive, mature approach to living life to the full with a passion to support our client to attain her goal is paramount.
