Hi!

 

I’m a young teenager with a physical disability and I’m looking for a fun and caring female personal assistant to help me do the things I like to do.

 

I like to go to the shops, meet my friends, go to the cinema, and have days out. I also have a physio programme that I do regularly.

 

Although it’s not essential that you have care experience, it’s important you understand my disability and how I want to be helped. I might be young, but I can speak for myself!

 

I use a hoist and stair climber, but we can provide training on how to use those. It would be useful if you could drive as I have my own vehicle that allows me to get out and do things.

 

To work with me you must be a member of the Protection of Vulnerable Groups scheme or be willing to join.  The employer will cover this cost.

 

The job requires helping me with the following things:

 

Personal Tasks

  • Assistance getting in and out of bed.
  • Assistance with showering / bathing.
  • Assistance with dressing and undressing, including assistance to wear environmentally appropriate clothing.
  • Assistance with toileting.
  • Assistance with eating and drinking.
  • Assistance with my physio programme and medication.

 

Domestic Tasks

  • Preparing and cooking my meals.

 

Independent Living Skills.

  • Travelling safely.
  • Meeting friends.
  • Going to the shops and the cinema.
  • Helping me to go swimming.
  • Helping me to do my physio programme.

 

Social Tasks

  • Help to go out and meet friends.
  • Help to take me out to the cinema or the shops.
  • Helping me to go swimming.
  • Helping me to go to my drama class.

 

Personal Qualities

  • Reliability and trustworthiness.
  • Have received Covid vaccinations.
  • Friendly and easy-going.
  • Sensitive and approachable.
  • Punctual.
  • Sense of humour.
