JOB DESCRIPTION
Personal Assistant

A LITTLE ABOUT MYSELF

I am a well-educated 69-year-old man. I am friendly and have a good sense of humour. I love popular, jazz and classical music, follow football and reality tv shows, and watch good documentaries on current affairs. I also enjoy cooking and used to have my own wine business. I enjoy chatting to new people and tend to get on with young people well. I live alone in the St Mellons area, and have a little elderly dog who is very sweet and goes out with a dog walker every day. My wife and I are separated but still have much contact and she helps to support me.

I have quite a lot of health and mobility problems and anxiety. I stay in my home most of the time and need assistance with daily activities such as food preparation and routine household tasks. I have a lift in my home so can get upstairs and see to my personal care myself, although I do use a commode downstairs.


PURPOSE OF JOB
I need support with daily household activities within my home. I may need some help with dressing at times.

PLACE OF WORK
I need support in my home in St Mellons. I may need help in getting to medical appointments if my ex-wife is unable to take me but this can be by taxi and wheelchair, so driving or access to a car is not required.

HOURS OF WORK
I have 14 hours a week of support agreed, which I can use flexibly. I would need two personal assistants to cover the hours and one another.


RATE OF PAY
£9.70 per hour
