Rebecca is an amazing 26-year-old lady with a wicked sense of humour. Rebecca enjoys an active social life and loves to attend the cinema and theatre often accompanied by enjoying a meal before or after a show. Rebecca enjoys listening to a wide range of music types but especially likes Ollie Murs, Ed Sheeran and Adele however she is partial to a bit of Elvis on occasion.

Rebecca is nonverbal and uses her iPad and phone to communicate via notes and texts. Rebecca is currently trialing some new electronic devices that allow her to communicate more effectively, and it seems to be going well for her.

Rebecca has Cerebral Palsy and uses an electric wheelchair. She has an adapted car to accommodate her wheelchair. An experienced car driver is essential to Rebecca.

Rebecca has a lot of support from her parents and family however she feels like she would like to start doing more activities on her own with the support of a Personal Assistant.

Rebecca would like a Personal Assistant that has a great sense of humour and is a car driver, so they can go off and explore new activities and enjoy her usual choice of activities.

Rebecca is hoping to find someone who could accompany her to a family holiday home for overnight stays and weekend trips.

If you are lucky enough to be Rebecca’s Personal Assistant, I can guarantee you will have some great times with her!
