We are looking for a personal assistant to help a 73-year-old female to maintain her independence with personal care and dressing. Our client has a diagnosis of Parkinson’s and walks with a zimmer. She has poor balance and easily exhausted after daily living tasks therefore needs support to prevent falls. Working at our client’s pace to get dressed and ready for breakfast will prevent her body shutting down. Getting changed for bed at night would also be beneficial. Hours can be negotiated at interview.

We would ask that you write a small paragraph about yourself which will allow the family to gain a better idea of why you would like to have this post.

Applicants must have a caring attitude, have a good sense of humour, be reliable with a positive and flexible approach to work. Having experience within this area would be of benefit.

This role requires an enhanced check through PVG (Protecting Vulnerable Groups). Being a driver is an advantage due to location.
