A bit about Alex

Alexander is a 28-year-old gentleman. He has limited communication skills and uses a small amount of Makaton. While Alexander has a small vocabulary, with a regular staff team they will learn to communicate effectively with him. Alexander can be repetitive with words at times, so you will need a patient and calm approach and the ability to redirect the conversation.

Alexander is a very active individual and has planned activities every week. Being a confident driver and being physically fit is essential for this role as you will be required to juggle and engage in multiple appointments:

  • Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday - Rare Breeds Centre
  • Monday and Tuesday - Farm Day, assisting with wheelbarrows and other farmyard activities.
  • Wednesday - Arts and Crafts. You will attend a group with vulnerable adults, so being confident and knowledgeable of learning difficulties is a must.
  • Thursday - Hydrotherapy in Canterbury. You will need to be comfortable with driving in rush-hour traffic.
  • Friday - Gardening at Rare Breeds. This is a physical day. You will need to be fit and able to partake in activities with Alexander.

It is important to be aware of challenging behaviour and have the ability to deescalate situations. Rest assured; we will provide you with the necessary training to handle these situations effectively.

Being able to cook is absolutely essential, as Alexander absolutely loves cooking and eating. It brings him great joy and satisfaction.

Alexander appreciates confident individuals who make him feel safe. He doesn't like to be overly mothered, but he does appreciate people who genuinely care for him. He prefers a calm and structured environment, but one that is also fun and enjoyable.

Alexander has a wide range of interests, including going to the cinema, bowling, swimming, and cycling. Therefore, it is crucial that you are an active person who can engage in these activities with him.

Alexander values support from both men and women, so it is important to be able to provide that. Good communication skills are a must for this role. It is essential to be able to effectively communicate with Alexander’s and understand his needs and preferences.

Alexander is not a fan of big events such as parties, discos, or Christmas celebrations. He prefers more low-key activities that he can fully enjoy and process at his own pace.

One thing you should know about Alexander is that he has an incredible sense of humour and is very active and fun-loving. He manages his own personal care and dressing, so only a small amount of support is needed in that area. However, he will require assistance with cooking, cleaning, managing finances, and medication.

Rest assured; we are here to support you every step of the way. We want to create an environment where Alexander can thrive and enjoy his life to the fullest.
