Personal Assistant

Christchurch BH23. 

About the Role:

I am looking to for a self-employed Personal Care Assistant to help me with day to day tasks. I have been diagnosed with ME, Fibromyalgia, arthritis, and numerous other health conditions, but thankfully my sense of humour hasn’t been affected! I have some good days, but unfortunately, more bad ones, so require help to conserve what little energy I have so I can maintain some kind of life to spend with family and friends. I’m very down to earth and easy to get on with. I live with my 15 year old daughter who has ASD but is returning to school so is unlikely to be home during school hours. She doesn’t have any violent tendencies and is polite to my current carers. I have 2 cockapoos who are lively. One is a 6 month old puppy, so applicants must be at ease with them. My family visit frequently but aren’t able to assist with day to day tasks. I self medicate but may need reminding. 

You will not be required to wear a uniform. 

I am looking for 9.5 hours support per week, on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays - Times are negotiable.

  • Confident to be directive as and when required
  • Full, valid driving license
  • DBS Check will be required
