I am a frail man with some mobility and communication issues (awaiting diagnosis) and also have epilepsy which is well controlled with medication. I can walk short distances and am considering getting a mobility aid (Walker) for using outside in future. I am seeking a friendly personal assistant with good communication skills to support and encourage me to maintain my personal hygiene, showering and changing clothes regularly, and maintaining a healthy diet, as well as spending time with me to provide some domestic support and company. Initially this will just involve a regular home visit, however I would eventually like to be able to take short trips out. I like to listen to the radio and am keen on football, so would like someone who shares my interests and would be happy to chat with me.
