Job Description

My husband needs support 24 hours per day over 7 days per week.  We are looking for people to work as Personal Assistants to support him to continue living in our family home.

The role involves providing all of the support my husband needs to live at home.  This will vary from personal care including helping with showering, washing, brushing of teeth and providing mouth care every day; administering medication; repositioning and stretching legs throughout the day through to trachea care and peg feeding.   Equipment will need to be routinely and effectively sterilised.

Previous experience would be useful but full training can be given.

Part of the role will also be to take him out several times per week for a walk and fresh air.

Tasks such as laundry, ironing and any domestic tasks that he is unable to undertake himself will also be part of the role.
