Start your day knowing you'll make a difference - join our team of Support Workers in Ormesby, Norfolk and create a positive difference that improves the life for the people we support.
Hi, I am an active male supported by Dimensions. I have recently moved to the Great Yarmouth area and am looking for people to join my team and support me in my new home.
My family is very important to me and I see them twice a week. I like to have a structured week, within which I participate in my favourite activities such as playing snooker, visiting shops to purchase things I need and want, having coffee out, going out for picnics, going to new places and going out in my car which I call my red bus'.
I like to be smart and presentable, and I enjoy being told so! I enjoy traditional home-cooked food such as casserole and pie, and sometimes like to assist with cooking and preparation in the kitchen.
When at home I like to listen to my vast music collection, watch TV and music DVD’s, and play on my snooker table. I also like to complete my morning chores : put out the bins, feed the birds and water the plants.
I like to make choices within a structured context, such as choosing my clothes for the day, what to eat and what activities to do.
It’s ok if my Support Worker doesn't like all my activities, as long as you are enthusiastic to support me to do it. You never know, you might find that you enjoy it!
If you share Dimensions values you’ll have the opportunity to meet me as it’s important we’re a good match for each other
