Hello. I am a 30-year-old female looking for a personal assistant, to support me with living independently in my home and to get out and about. I predominantly live alone with my 2 lively but loving dogs. My partner visits regularly so will also be here on occasions.

In recent years I have been diagnosed with several mental and physical health problems which have negatively impacted on my daily life. I need someone who is willing to help and support me with daily activities whilst having a laugh in the process. My mental health and anxieties mean that I sometimes struggle to leave the security of my flat so accompanying me on dog walks, shopping trips and partaking in iced lattes at Costa are a necessity!

I have a variety of interests ranging from dinosaurs, arts and crafts, Ed Sheeran and music in general. When I’m well I’m a bubbly, chatty, fun person to be around, some would call me quite “special”, so you certainly won’t get bored!

Duties include:

  • Medication prompting/administering
  • Other relevant duties as required
  • Administration
  • Housekeeping

  • To walk my dogs with me
  • To go out for a coffee with me
  • To come with me to physical and mental health appointments
  • To laugh at my jokes ;)

Candidate qualities:

  • Respectful of the employer's privacy and confidentiality
  • Reliable with good timekeeping
  • Able to both follow instructions and work on own initiative
  • Hygienic, tidy and well organised
  • Patient and possess excellent interpersonal skills
  • Honest and cheerful
  • Creative
  • Able to speak and read English to a reasonable standard
  • Must be comfortable with pets
  • Able to always work to high standards of health & safety

  • Able to tolerate the employer smoking outside the workplace.

Notes:

All applicants must have the right to work in the UK and be willing to undertake an Enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service check if required.

Please note, if you are successful in your application for this position you will be employed directly by the individual employer and not Independent Lives. Successful applicants will be entitled to Holiday pay and will be issued employment contracts.
