I have a permanent tracheostomy, which requires regular suctioning. I also have epilepsy which is controlled.
I attend specialist education and my support workers accompany me to school, and I get out and about in the community with my adapted vehicle, which I love. I live with my family in a rented accommodation in Cheshire, I will move to my forever home in the future.
I will eventually live at two locations as my parents will have shared custody of me. You will be required to work from both sites. I have a 24-hour care package required at a ratio of 2:1 during the day and 1:1 wake carer at night and I have 8 team members at the moment.
