Looking for someone to babysit my autistic brother Oliver, age 19.
by Andrew • Leeds
I'm looking for a friendly caring individual to look after my autistic 19 year old brother Oliver for 7 hours on Monday 10th February. This is a one-off but your services may still be required in the future.
He has a much younger mental age than appears. More like 8. He has learning difficulties, has a very short attention span, he can be stubborn at times, he is very shy, suffers with social anxiety and frequent panic attacks.
He is very clumsy, he suffered multiple head injuries when he was younger. He's constantly falling over or banging his head on things. He wears a soft protective helmet to protect his head. He likes it, he thinks it's cool, he says he looks like a superhero, bless him. Its just a safety measure.
He is also incontinent so you may be required to change his nappy. He simply wont use toilets, never potty trained. He has always been really stubborn.
He was bullied when he was younger and finds it hard to trust other people. He gets really anxious around people. We also feed him a vegan diet, mainly because he has allergies to a lot of animal products.
I will prepare food for him in advance, you don't have to worry about feeding him. He drinks from a bottle because he is always spilling his drinks. He has a tendency to avoid drinking his bottle because he easily gets distracted by other things. Please make sure he stays hydrated. If he doesn't drink please just take the bottle and feed him. He doesn't mind, we have to do that all the time with him.
He also still likes a pacifier occasionally. It comforts him. We just let him have them when not in public and when sleeping, it makes him feel better and helps him to relax.
Basically, I'm looking for someone to look after him for 7 hours. I myself cannot on this occasion, which is why im looking for someone to care for Oliver and help me out as a one off. There is chance of future work though, you never know.
He loves Lego. He can be very playful, hes like a big kid sometimes. His smile could light up a room.
If you could keep him company whilst he builds his Lego or watches TV. He is easily pleased.
Also, I would like to add that he must be cared for at the carers place of work. I have had problems in the past with other carers. I have trust issues. I will be locking up my residence when I'm away.
I will pack all of Oliver's essentials and he will bring them with him.
