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 My previous experience includes working with young people with various disabilities for varying service providers and charities.
What qualities do you think are important when working as a personal assistant with a disabled person? I believe patience, care and empathy are the three most important qualities as these enable me to understand the challenges a disabled person may face.
Kindness is also paramount and I aim to treat each person with dignity and understanding to help develop their communication skills.
How do you think you can contribute towards the needs and the independence of a disabled person? I aim to put each young person at ease as I am aware that new people and new situations can be stressful, especially for those with disabilities. I do this by being patient and reassuring and giving them the time and space they need. This helps to improve their development and allows them to progress having gained their trust.
What is it about PA work which appeals to you? I like that you are able to give a disabled young person the individual time and attention needed to help them progress and develop at their own pace in a safe environment tailored to their needs.
What are your hobbies/interests? In my spare time I practice holistic therapies and I am a qualified Reiki level 2 and aromatherapy & massage level 2 practitioner. I also enjoy drama and theatre and also keep physically fit with my personal exercise regime.
