JOB DESCRIPTION

Personal Assistant

A LITTLE ABOUT MYSELF

I am a 74 year old male living with my wife and dog in Penarth. I have had a few falls in the past which has resulted in multiple brain injuries and last year I was diagnosed with Frontal temporal lobe Dementia. This affects my temperament and sometimes I can have mood swings where I can shout, cry or get angry. I can sometimes be inappropriate with my words and say things that could easily offend people. My mobility isn’t the best as it used to be and spend a lot of time in bed but I can make small trips with the aid of my frame.
