This vacancy would suit a male looking for support
Hi I’m Simon, I have been a Shared Lives Carer since 2005. I live on a rural farm near Altarnun with my dogs , cats and horses. My son and daughter live in a cottage on the land and it is very peaceful and quite remote.
My house is a traditional style detached farmhouse kept cosy in the winter with wood burners. There are 5 bedrooms in the house, and a upstairs and down stairs shower room. There is a single bedroom available in this Shared lives placement.
I have no neighbours and the property is surrounded by fields and trees. There is a off road track which you can walk to get to the nearest village where there is a shop, post office, pub and bus stop.
I share my home with 1 other person through Shared Lives. My partner Beverly also comes to stay regularly. I have 2 Cats, 3 Dogs and Horses.
We love to spend time outside on the farm with my horses and dogs. We walk regularly on Bodmin Moor and other local areas. I enjoy cooking for the family, and eating together. I will often meet friends and go to the pub, or out for a meal.
I have supported young people for my whole career, from fostering children and young people in transition to now working with adults. I have experience in supporting people with mental health conditions, ADHD and Autism. I have worked with a variety of service users with many different support needs, with a large amount of this experience being working with young men in transition, who have come from foster care or other backgrounds.
I have 2 vacancies for Long term or short breaks for males with the following support needs.
The towns of Bodmin and Launceston have a wide variety of shops, swimming pools and gyms as well as all the usual day services and clubs you will find in a large town.
There are regular bus from the nearest village to Launceston and Plymouth.
Duchy college is also within easy distance and there is a college in Launceston.
