Ten reasons to work for Beyond Limits

More about...

“Beyond Limits goes where it says on the tin and much further!  Since entering my daughter’s life and taking over her care, she has blossomed into a much more outgoing person.  Her Support Workers are a dedicated team who have a great rapport with her ensuring that she enjoys her life to the full.  They treat her with such great kindness and respect that she regards them as her friends as well as Support Workers.  We all appreciate everything Beyond Limits has done for her and we look forward to many happy years of support to come”.  This is a quote from Katy’s mum.

Beyond Limits Dumfries & Galloway supports people with learning disability, mental health issues and drug and alcohol issues to live an independent life that they choose.  Beyond Limits D&G is a very person-centred organisation which means that the Supported Person is at the centre of everything we do.

You will be supporting Katy.  Katy is a friendly, polite and sociable young lady who enjoys horse-riding, walking animals and days out.  She needs your support to live a life that makes sense to her, to develop her independence, go places she enjoys and try out new activities.  She loves to cook and bake and enters our regular bake-off competition with amazing results.  Like most young females, Katy likes getting her hair and nails done, loves to eat out and go to the cinema and theatre and she is open to suggestions of new things to try although she knows her own mind and will say no if it’s not for her.

Like the rest of us, Katy can have an off-day.  You will need to be patient but encouraging on these days and know that her good days will follow.

Katy doesn’t need any personal care as she does this independently, occasionally with a bit of prompting.  You will get to know Katy and her family well and be welcomed into the household.

Katy has an established, friendly Team but needs an extra person to support her every Friday.  Being able to be flexible is essential as you will be needed to cover your team mates when on annual leave, training or sick leave.  There will also be the opportunity for more hours should you wish.

You don’t need any experience in the Care Sector as full induction training and continued support will be provided.   We just ask that you are caring, friendly, motivated and dedicated.
