I have several rare conditions that mean I use a wheelchair to get around, experience some high levels of fatigue and have some complex health issues. I am therefore looking for a Personal Assistant to join my team and help me with practical daily living tasks.

 

While no day is guaranteed to look like another, tasks will include (but not be limited to); helping with washing and dressing, meal preparation and some basic housework and laundry.

 

I am ideally looking for someone who can commit to two mornings (approximately 3-4 hours a week). Applicants should be willing to work one weekend in three (exact times and days to be negotiated between employer and PA). Additional hours may become available.
