Positive Behaviour Support Worker

Hi I'm a 27 year old man and I need a support worker to help me in my day to day life.

I am caring enthusiastic and lots of fun!

I can do the majority of my own personal care and dressing but do need prompting to do this properly. I like to clean my own flat and hoover but like staff to prompt me and make this fun.

I have my own mobility car and love going out shopping, swimming, bowling, going for long walks and kicking a football around.

I have a diagnosis of ADHD which affects me in many ways. I take medication to help me with my condition but I need support and understanding from care team to help me cope with everyday life.

I do become easily distracted and am always on the go. I don't mean to but I sometimes act without thinking and can become aggressive and verbally abusive.

When I communicate I tend to use key words and fragment my sentences. I can be very repetitive in my speech and this can make me difficult to understand at times. When I feel that I'm not being understood I become frustrated very quickly.

I am very perceptive and can tell what mood you are in and you feelings towards me. When I first meet you I may be shy and quiet and it may take me a while to feel comfortable with you!

I do prefer to be supported by men.
