Our home is on a rural block 15 minutes from Katherine. As I run an `on call` business from home it means it is hard to stick to a schedule with my son and I am away from home 2-3 days and nights at a time.
My son is 18 years old and has Down Syndrome. He attends a special needs school in Katherine Monday- Friday.
As he is unable to live independently at the moment a responsible persons presence is required to ensure his safety and wellbeing. The support and care would include drop off and pick ups from school, meals, laundry and some domestic duties. Support with some basic tutoring and homework tasks would also be appreciated.
He is very aware of the world around him enjoying riding his push bike and occasionally a four wheeler, he has a passion for music including playing his brothers electric guitar, loves drawing, loves his food, a little too much, therefore focussing on a healthy diet with your help would be encouraged.
We have a large extended family in the local area, as well as my partner who lives in the township with her children, thus enabling support and flexibility with the role.
