JOB DESCRIPTION

Personal Assistant

A LITTLE ABOUT MYSELF

I am 30 years old and have moderate learning difficulties. I live on my own in a privately rented flat in the Cowbridge area. I enjoy socialising with friends and before the lockdown I went to a bowling club for adults with learning difficulties once a week. I also went to Vale Plus 4 days a week. This is a centre for adults with learning difficulties to continue to learn and to socialise with others. As this is closed at the moment I don’t have as much to do in the daytime as usual.

PURPOSE OF JOB

I would like help with day to day jobs in the flat such as cleaning, sorting out clothes for charity and tidying drawers and cupboards,

I like to cook but need help to learn new recipes and to increase healthy food choices.

My mother deals with all my money and I need help to learn to budget properly.

I like occasional visits to the cinema or live music events and when these restart I would like help to get to these.
