Female Personal Assistant and Housekeeper
8 hours a day to cover 3 days per week on a 7 day rota basis
£9.50 per hour
Edward and Sheila are a retired couple in their early eighties who have lived in Fenham for the last 56 years. Edward worked as a Civil Engineer and Sheila as a Physiotherapist.
Sheila has Corticobasal Degeneration which has affected her mobility and speech – she is no longer able to walk and has lost much of her ability to speak. She needs assistance with most aspects of daily living. Edward has provided this assistance for some years, as Sheila’s full-time carer.
Purpose of Job
Edward and Sheila are seeking the services of a personal assistant(s) to provide personal care for Sheila and to take over day-to-day domestic chores. This will release Edward from some of his caring role and enable Sheila and Edward to regain some of the quality time they used to enjoy together.
With Edward on his mobility scooter and with someone to push Sheila in her wheelchair, the couple hope to be able to resume trips out in the local area.
They are looking for someone who is patient, with excellent communication and a good sense of humour. Someone who will commit to providing a high standard of personal care for Sheila and commit to the smooth running of the home.
