I am in my early 50’s and am awaiting Stem Cell Surgery for cancer, which means I am currently experiencing pain and fatigue and have limited mobility (and will potentially need increased care after my operation). I have three children, 11, 13, and 15 who are a great help around the home, but I need a Personal Assistant to support me with some domestic tasks, personal care, and getting out to do shopping and attend appointments. Our family also includes three cats and a Cocker Spaniel, so an animal lover is essential, and my P.A. needs to be a driver with their own car.
