I am looking for personal care for a Woman

Every other Saturday or Sunday initially 10-3 with a possible overnight shift once you get to know me.

Hourly pay rate:


I am a 28 year old woman looking for someone to take me out and about to visit the places I love. I really enjoy walking in the countryside so it would be great if you enjoy that as much as me and maybe we can find some new places to visit too.
I also really enjoy arts and crafts so this is something we could do on a rainy day.
I am happy for these hours to be filled by one of more PAs but you will need a driving licence and access to your own car so we can go out and have fun.
Once I get to know you there may be the option for an overnight respite shift at your house so ideally you would not have dogs at your home as I am very scared of them.
