Job Purpose: Personal assistant required by man recovering from Stroke, and in early stages of Vascular Dementia, to assist with access to the community, socialising etc.
Location: Cromer, Norfolk
Details: I am a man in my early 60’s who is recovering from a stroke, meaning I am unsteady on my feet and require assistance when going out. I’d like someone to share trips out/socialising, giving my wife some respite. I enjoy gardening, playing pool, shopping and generally going out to meet people. I have a recent diagnosis of Vascular Dementia, and therefore there might be a possibility of needing to increase hours in the future.
May include other duties, to be discussed, potential to increase hours in future.
