JOB DESCRIPTION

Personal Assistant

A LITTLE ABOUT MYSELF

I am a very social person who loves to be around other people, I enjoy lots of different activities including using my computer, going for walks, different sports including badminton, and horse riding. I get very excited about going and being busy but I can need some encouragement to try new things and to stay focused on what I am doing. I need someone to stay by me as I can be tempted to wander off and I don’t have any awareness of danger. Everyone says I am happy, polite and well behaved!

 

PURPOSE OF JOB

TYPE OF PERSON REQUIRED

A kind and caring person with patience, I have a slow processing speed so you may need to repeat a question before I understand you, I can talk but may be a bit shy and quiet at first, my words can be a little difficult to understand at times and you may need to ask me to repeat what I have said. I don’t like loud noises so will try to avoid these and you need to make sure I stay safe when this happens
