Job Purpose: To assist a lady with physical disabilities to lead an independent life
I am a friendly, mature lady with Scoliosis and Parkinsons Disease, and although I am mobile with the use of a walker I do have balance issues and therefore require carers to assist me with everyday tasks both in the home, and going out. When I go out I use a manual wheelchair. As there is an element of personal care (bathing etc), a female carer would be preferred. I also require domestic support, including meal preparation, and the PA will need to be a driver/own vehicle for occasional trips out. This position is to join a small team of Personal Assistants and there will be the opportunity for extra hours on a flexible basis to cover whilst other team members are on leave. A dog lover is essential as I have a small Yorkie/cross.
May include other duties, to be discussed
