About Me
I am a 45 year old man who has recently moved to the island. I live with my mum in a large house where I have a self -contained flat. I am profoundly deaf, blind in one eye and have a diagnosis of mild learning disability and Aspergers Syndrome. I communicate by using British Sign Language (BSL). I am independent in all areas of my personal care.
I have an assistance dog whom I adore and I enjoy taking him for his twice daily walks. I also work part time – 3 days a week in the kitchen of a local beach front café . Before I moved to the IW I worked for many years in the kitchen of a large hotel where I was supported by my employment support worker. I need additional help as I struggle to read, write and manage my finances.
I am very active and my hobbies include walking, running, swimming and going out to cafes. I don’t know many people yet but would like to attend parkrun each Saturday as a way of keeping fit and and socialising.
I would also like support to cook an evening meal one night a week. This will involve shopping for the ingredients beforehand.

What support I require
My mum has been supporting me to socialise but having a PA would give her a break.
I would like a PA who is able to use BSL and who enjoys being active. The hours of support I need are Sat mornings for Parkrun (3 hours) and one eve a week (negotiable day/time) for 3 hours. Weekly total of 6 hours.
