Description

I work with my PAs who assist me 24/7 to live my life in the way that I choose. I am looking for a PA, to work over Christmas and New Year. I am female, in my 50's, have ms and am a full-time powered wheelchair user. I am very independent, but need you to do things that I cannot do for myself. I have a rig(peg) through which I receive 'food' and medication.The job includes, but is not limited to; personal care, catheter and rig care(training will be provided) using a hoist for all transfers, light housework. Escorting me when I go out. (Fuller job description at interview)

It is important that you have a cheerful, practical 'can do attitude' and a pro-active approach to life. I do not live my live to a fixed routine dictated by a care plan so you should be capable of 'going with the flow' and able to approach difficulties from a lateral thinking perspective.

You should be able to handle the physical tasks of pushing, bending, so you should be physically fit. I am tall so you must be at least 1.70 in height or you could have difficulties working with me, and seeing over my wheelchair when we are out! Any shorter is bad for both of our backs. The mornings are usually the busiest, in the afternoons I generally will need less help but need you to be within earshot if I do need help. You will usually have a minimum of 2 hours breaks during the day but the timing of these will vary according to my schedule.

I am the employer and the job involves self-directed support, in order to do this you must speak and understand fluent English. You need to be capable of, and willing, to follow my instructions. If you would not feel comfortable doing this, then this is probably not the job for you. You should feel confident working alone.

You must be able to work on all of the following dates:
