PA Vacancy

Female Personal Assistant/Support Worker – KGNCL

Hours:  6 hours per week (to be arranged)

Area:  Newcastle upon Tyne

Rates of Pay: £12.60 per hour

 

Do you enjoy socialising? Would you like a role where you can use your friendly, sociable support skills? You may have never worked as a support worker/Personal Assistant before but if you are friendly, prepared to learn how to support me then this could be the perfect job for you.

 

Purpose of role

You will be enabling me to get out and about, have fun, socialise, and take part in various activities that I choose. This may include, going out for a drink (I may drink alcohol so you will need to be comfortable with this) or something to eat. I also enjoy going to the Theatre. There is generally no personal care involved in this role during the hours you would work. Good English and listening skills are essential to this role.

 

About Me

I enjoy socialising, going to the pub to watch live bands and listening to music, I enjoy going out for a meal to my favourite restaurants or out for coffee. I also enjoy going to the cinema, theatre and I love travelling. I would expect my PA to be able to book tickets and make reservations for me when required. I love a night at the casino so my PA must be prepared to accompany me to this venue. I also enjoy getting my nails done regularly so I would expect my PA to book my appointments and accompany me to the nail salon.

I have a physical disability which means that I need support in getting around and require support in all areas of daily living. I live with my husband, and I have a grown-up son.

I use a powerchair within the house but when going out in the car I use a manual wheelchair which you will be required to push. However, I am a petite lady and so this shouldn’t be a problem for someone with a good general level of fitness. You will not need to drive as my husband will drop us off and pick us up. He is my personal taxi service!

I require support with feeding and holding my drink.
