Please read the Job Description carefully before providing information in this Section of the Application Form. Give details of your previous employment or experience which you think would help you to do this job

I am a mother of a young lady with severe global delay and a few other conditions which I feel gives a good foundation to understand this gentleman's condition, although every person is an individual with different barriers to achieve their full potential. Although I have no formal qualifications I have two brothers with learning difficulties and a nephew with Asperger's giving me an insight into the male perspective with living with different conditions and the daily impact. I was also a respite foster carer for the disabled children's team for approx. 8 years but finished due to remodelling our home to accommodate my daughters needs.

What qualities do you think are important when working as a personal assistant with a disabled person?

I think essential qualities are;
patience
kindness
being supportive
setting clear boundaries
helping to achieve life skills
reliable and consistent
the ability to encourage independence whilst keeping them safe
providing companionship
most importantly just being yourself and being respectful to the person you are supporting, respecting their privacy

How do you think you can contribute towards the needs and the independence of a disabled person?

I would love the opportunity to help this young man to flourish, learn essential life skills and just help to support him to experience new things whilst keeping him safe and offering support to him whilst out and about in the community and at home. I am patient person and love to see people grow and flourish to achieve their goals, such as money handling or experiencing something new that they maybe unsure of, whilst making them feel safe and confident in what they are doing.

What is it about PA work which appeals to you?

The idea of PA work that appeals to me the most is working with someone who needs support to achieve their goals be it cash handling, going for a walk or just trying something new which may push their boundaries a little, all whilst keeping them safe and helping to build their self confidence. I truly feel joy at watching people achieve new life skills and expanding their horizons.

What are your hobbies/interests?

I love to go hiking, walk my Great Dane rescue Lily, going to the cinema, cooking and spending time with my family.
I enjoy being active and out and about in the community but do enjoy watching films at home. I enjoy the company of others and love to have diverse conversations as I always learn something new.
