I am a young woman with disabilities, meaning I need a P.A. to support me when I attend Daycare Centre and also to be with me on a flexible basis allowing respite for my family. This will include some overnight sleep-in support when my Mum goes away. I need personal care, including prompting to go to the toilet, and assistance with showering and dressing. I am able to feed myself but would require someone to prepare food and drinks. I’m verbally fine, and mobile, but can only walk short distances. I enjoy films and music, and love Elvis. I would like a friendly P.A. who enjoys a good chat.
