Job title: Female Personal Assistant
Hours: 10/11 hours, weekdays, occasional weekends
Rates of pay: £12.50 per hour.
Area: Blakelaw, Newcastle
My name is Dennis, and I am 47 years old, and I live with my sister, Tracie, who is responsible for my care, and her partner and we have a small dog.
I don’t always communicate easily due to my hearing and visual loss and there may be long pauses between questions and sometimes I give an answer that it is out of sync with the question asked, so being a good listener is essential.
My passion is my computer but since I’ve had a stroke, I cannot access it anymore so someone with a passion for computers would be ideal.
I have limited mobility and require assistance with all transfers using a stand aid and assistance with personal care.
I love a cup of tea and need encouragement to stay hydrated and after a few cups I like to have a nap in the afternoon for a couple of hours.
To be my Personal Assistant you should have some experience of working with disabled adults with visual impairment.
