I am looking for a Female* Personal Assistant who will be able to help a disabled person.
I am looking for a Personal Assistant who will be able to accompany an elderly person when I have to go to a store or office. The assistant will support the elderly person to eat and drink as required, get dressed/undressed, and keep them company.
The individual also requires assistance to go for a walk, which will involve supporting them into their manual wheelchair and pushing the wheelchair later. The Personal Assistant does not need to have prior experience of supporting someone to use a wheelchair, as they will be taught how to do so.
The assistant must be reliable, and trustworthy. It is important that the employee is aware of and sensitive to my needs. As a Personal Assistant is required for individual work, it is important that the employer and employee maintain a mutual, open, and fair relationship.
It would be great if you are able to speak in Polish, but this is not necessary.
I am looking for two people to work 7.5 hours per week, with the shift pattern to be agreed upon between the employee and employer. Payment for work is £10.50 per hour.
Thanks for reading this post.
