JOB DESCRIPTION

Personal Assistant

A LITTLE ABOUT MYSELF

I am a friendly lady living with my 2 teenage sons in the Cowbridge area.  I have M.E and so am therefore looking to employ a Personal Assistant to assist me at home with day to day tasks enabling me to remain independence. My condition fluctuates a lot – sometimes I am bedridden, at other times I can move around slowly but spend a lot of time resting. I am housebound the majority of the time.  Sometimes I barely have the energy to talk or it is painful to speak due to severe sore throats, and I also suffer from hemiplegic migraines.

I am looking for someone who understands and appreciates this and it is very important to me that anyone coming to work with me has experience or knowledge of my condition and/or people research M.E prior to applying for this job.

PURPOSE OF THE JOB
