A fantastic opportunity has arisen to join an established care and support team supporting an individual in his own home. You will work directly for the individual.
Purpose of Job
You will provide the physical assistance needed to enable me to be as fully independent as possible. As my Personal Assistant, you must be extremely reliable and be able to work flexible hours (sometimes at short notice). Ideally you will have some knowledge and experience of supporting someone with Parkinson’s Disease. However even if you have this, you must still be willing to learn about the condition in terms of how it affects me personally.
I am looking for someone who is friendly, has a sense of humour, is patient with a calm and consistent approach to the role and can judge when I am in the mood for conversation or when I need to be left to rest.
You will be proactive and able to work under minimum supervision.
I have a wide range of interests. I love all types of sport (although football remains my favourite) and I enjoy books particularly the classics (Tolstoy, Orwell, Dostoyevsky, etc.) but I am always looking for new authors to discover. I also enjoy crosswords as I am fascinated by words and sometimes need practical support to complete them (I work out the answer and you write it down).
You will be expected to have had or be prepared to have the COVID 19 vaccine for this role.
