JOB DESCRIPTION

Personal Assistant

A LITTLE ABOUT MYSELF

I am a lady in my late 50’s living in Beddau. I have MS and use a motorised wheelchair. I describe myself as an outgoing chatterbox who can sometimes be a bit cheeky (in a friendly way). I enjoy shopping, going to dog shows and watching TV. I have an elderly dog named Bobby and I love him dearly.

I enjoy the company of others and with the support of a personal assistant it will give me the opportunity to socialise more.

PURPOSE OF THE JOB

The main purpose of the job is to help me to live as independently as possible by supporting me when I go out in the community allowing me to do the things I enjoy.

HOURS OF WORK

There are 5 hours per week available, to be worked flexibly from week to week

  • Supporting me to access all social opportunities in the area
  • Suggesting new places to visit or new activities to do

  • Sometimes I’ll need you to take in information for me and then relay it back to me in simpler terms so I understand – especially after a hospital appointment
  • Going around the local shops with me
  • Driving my mobility car

TYPE OF PERSON REQUIRED

  • A friendly, confident and chatty person
  • I am a smoker so you will not mind this
  • Someone who is OK with dogs
