JOB DESCRIPTION 

Part-time Personal Assistant

A LITTLE ABOUT MYSELF

I am a gentleman in my early 50s living in the Llantrisant area. I am a very kind and friendly person and like to make people feel comfortable. I have a bit of a wicked sense of humour and like to make people laugh. I used to enjoy reading horror books with Stephan King being one of my favourite authors.

I would like someone to help me get ready for the day in the mornings and ready for bed in the evenings. Making sure that my flat is tidy and clear of trip hazards would be needed. I require support in the community and would like to go out for a few hours doing different things like shopping, going for a wander, going for coffee and going out for food. I am happy to take suggestions of activities we could do as I am open to trying new things.

I am registered blind and use a wheelchair. I can use crutches for short distances however. I am able to transition into a car so a car big enough to fit an average foldable wheelchair in would be ideal.

PURPOSE OF JOB

I would like a PA to support me at home and in the community. I am happy to have more than one PA so if you have some availability but unable to commit to the full package, please still apply.
