Hey, I am a young man, and I will 18 on the 8th of August and I am looking for a carer to help me with my everyday life

I am looking for someone to laugh with me, play with me and most of all to look after me.

I am a very high energy individual, and I am…… ssssshhhh don’t tell everyone…. I’m a pirate.

I love the water, I love boats, I love cars and motorbikes, and I love watching 999 service with their flashing lights.

I love watching the people down the skate park doing their stunts on their bikes and skates, it makes me laugh.

When I am not feeling too good, I like to wind down and be chilled and watch movies and my needs will need to be met.

I love my shower and pamper time. I take pride in my appearance.

I love to play role play; it makes me happy. My Mumma set the bar for that, so I hope you like being silly.

I have lots of needs as I can’t do things by myself.
