Personal cook/ meal planner

10 hours per week

Salary: £4,739 pa

I’m a healthy, active 26 year-old man who lives in Ely and is looking for a chef to support me with my meals.  I have Prader-Willi syndrome and having a controlled, nutritious diet is very important for my well-being.

You will need to be flexible and be keen to learn about the specific requirements of my diet.  You will be able to plan precise daily menus and provide the exact food for my mealtimes; this is essential for me.  I have a food budget which you will be accountable for and the role includes going food shopping for me 2-3 times a week, ensuring that my store cupboards are suitably stocked.  My staff team will be on hand to answer any queries and know me well.  My mother lives close by and plays a key role in the training of the people that support me; she is happy to help with any questions that you may have.

You will need to be able to prepare and cook my meals in your own home, these can be done in batches and frozen where appropriate.  As some weeks are not the same, I will need you to keep up to date with my timetable changes and plan around these such as when I’m on holiday or need different food for instance picnics. It is also important to me that any food wastage is kept to a minimum, use by dates are adhered too and food is stored correctly.

You will ideally hold a level 2 award in Food Safety in Catering or equivalent.

Support Worker Positions

SW Jobs

“I am a fun loving, cheeky young man who is looking for people to support me so I can experience and enjoy a fun and interesting life.

Here are a few things I really enjoy; Lion King is one of my all-time favourites, I’ve seen the show many times and never tire from watching the movies. Other movie choices are across the board from Batman, Spiderman, all the Marvel, to Beauty & the Beast, Frozen, Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings, the list goes on!

I enjoy going out, bowling, cinema, golf at the driving range, going to the seaside, and visiting my family. I’m getting my own car so it would be great if you can drive so I can do the things I enjoy the most.

I very much enjoy chatting and talking about the things that interest me, although you will have to be patient with me as it takes longer for me to process information and to learn new skills, and tasks, so learning may need to be broken down into smaller steps. I sometimes find it difficult to explain myself, so again be patient with me. I am a healthy and able young man but need support with cooking (healthy meals), keeping up with my house chores, encouragement to shower so that I look my best always. Guidance and support when out in the community is very important for my safety.

You will need to be outgoing, young at heart, kind, patient and someone who can help to find ways to communicate and help to keep me safe and look after my house. I’m not an elephant but I have a good memory, so it’s important to me that you are able to remember all the things that are also important to me.

Be confident in your style and help me get through the things I need to do in my day.”
