Personal Assistant Ref DPSS198

Weeting

Direct Payment Support Service

Closing Date: 20/01/20

Job Description:
To assist with domestic tasks supporting lady with Fibromyalgia and personality disorder

Location: Weeting, Nr Brandon

Details: I am a lady suffering from Fibromyalgia which causes constant pain and mobility issues, as well as having anxiety/depression, however I enjoy arts and crafts and knitting, and it is important for me to keep my home clean and tidy. I adore my dogs, and therefore require a dog lover, and someone who will be resilient and encourage me to make the most of life. I am able to get out with the use of my mobility scooter and can walk short distances with crutches, but a car driver/owner would be an advantage. As I am dyslexic I would like someone who is able to help me with paperwork and who might be confident to communicate with professionals on my behalf. I would also require some help with some food shopping and meal preparation but I don’t need personal care as I am currently able to manage this for myself.

May include other duties as required.
