I am a lady with MS who experiences left side weakness and fatigue, therefore in need of support to complete some domestic tasks, such has ironing and bed making, as well as meal preparation and some personal care. I am an independent person, who won’t let my disability take over my life. I am an animal lover and have 2 cats, and recently rescued a mare and foal, and most days go out on my mobility scooter to see them. I can walk, but only short distances. I would prefer a driver with own vehicle so that they could occasionally support me to access the community. I am new to the area and would like a friendly P.A. who can help me to familiarise myself with my surroundings. Because of the personal care element of this role a female P.A. would be preferable, and it would be helpful if they can help style my hair.
