JOB DESCRIPTION

Casual Female Personal Assistant

A LITTLE ABOUT MYSELF

I am a disabled lady living in the Barry area. I enjoy watching soaps on television and I like listening to all types of music.  Like most ladies I enjoy shopping and stopping at a café or going out having some lunch.  I would be keen on going to see a musical or even considering any woman’s groups/clubs that would be suitable.  I’m looking at employing a Personal Assistant who will help me to build things up slowly, increasing my skills and confidence over a period of time.

I live with my brother and need additional support to live independently and to pursue interests outside of the home.   I am a chatty, fun lady always looking to have a laugh and possibly increase my levels of activity.   I’m looking for some support that will help me gain my confidence back in the community.  I would like to see what’s happening locally and not spend as much time in the house which should give me a better quality of life; and support my relationship with my brother.  My brother works most days and is not always able to support me with accessing the community or any socialisation.
