Job Purpose

To support a bubbly, outgoing lady with limited mobility and visual impairment

Due to various physical health issues I walk with crutches at home and use a wheelchair to go out and about. I live with my son, but as he works full time, I require support with everyday tasks and social activities, including some personal care, housework (particularly vacuuming, changing bedding and doing laundry) and shopping. I like to go to Norwich, have my nails done, and go to the swimming pool/Spa when possible. Also, you will need to be willing to take my dog out. You may also occasionally accompany me to appointments.
