Hello, my partner and I and our daughter moved from London 3 years ago and have built a beautiful house in a one and a half acre plot in Farnham, Surrey. We still have lots to do here and my partner is continuing to work on the house at this difficult time.
I am looking for some help with my daughter. She is 13 and has severe learning difficulties. She is non-verbal and can display some autistic like behaviours and also challenging behaviours). I am looking for someone who has experienced this kind of difference and behaviour and would feel able to help me look after her. Amelie loves vibrant and energetic people who are playful and patient too. She has had many carers over the years and they have formed very loving bonds with her in spite of her challenges and differences.
Ideally, I would love someone who has experienced this kind of difference before and has a confident personality. You would need to be quite fit and energetic as she is getting quite big and strong now. You would need to be prepared to help with personal care as she has no self care skills. I would be around to guide you but my intention is to have a break from the care.
We have built a modern self contained flat over the garage where we could host one person or a couple. The flat is 50 square metres, has a large living/kitchen area a bathroom with bath and shower and a medium sized bedroom. You would be able to be independent from us as well as being together. Offering a generous salary and accommodation and this would suit a driver.
We live about 2 miles from Farnham which is a lovely historic town in Surrey. You can reach the town by bus or walking ( about 25/30 minutes) We live in a semi rural setting lots of space and open countryside nearby yet close to the town, the best of both worlds. You can walk out from the house into lovely walking countryside.,
