I am looking for personal care for a woman
Drivers licence required: Yes
Own vehicle needed: Yes
Hours per week:
Every other Saturday or Sunday initially 10-3 with a possible overnight shift once you get to know me.
Hourly pay rate:
Companion/ Personal Assistant
Currently, I’m just looking for someone to take me out and about to the places that we’re allowed to visit. I really enjoy walking (especially in the countryside) so I’m looking for someone who enjoys that as much as me! Maybe we can find some new places to visit. I am very scared of dogs, so they would have to be avoided as much as possible.
I love arts and crafts so I would enjoy someone to do this with me on a rainy day
I am happy for these hours to be filled by one or a combination of PAs
Once i get to know you there may be the request for an overnight respite shift at your house, therefore I need a PA that does not have their own dogs please.
