I acquired a brain injury a few years ago and this has massively effected my daily living skills. I suffer from chronic pain and fatigue, as well as having impaired memory, high anxiety and confidence issues. I like to have a fun atmosphere around me with plenty of laughter and banter. I would love to be able to live as normal a life as I can and enjoy the things I love, such as arts and crafts, movies and spending time with my family. I am looking for a Rehabilitation Support Worker who can enable me to become more independent and support me in my day to day life.’
