Female Personal Assistant
I am looking for a personal assistant to help me live independently, help with personal care, and social activities. I use a hoist for transferring for which training will be given. Epilepsy training available if required. I am a chilled out young woman, with Cerebral Palsy, Epilepsy, and a range of other health problems. I live in East Grinstead with my parents who support me. I am non-verbal and would really love someone who loves to communicate and is as sociable as I am. I’d like someone who would be willing to take me out for activities on the days I’m able to go or spend time with me indoors and listen to music when I’m not. Because of my epilepsy, I can become unwell during the night, so I’d need someone who is flexible with the hours they can work, so they can start early in the mornings if needed, to help give my mum a break. Any experience with PEG feeding, using hoists and Epilepsy would be a huge benefit, although training can be provided if you don’t have any.
