I am an honest, caring and generous lady looking for a PA, who would be happy to put up with my love of cleanliness and take on my way of doing things (My family would probably say I’m over clean!)

I love to read, equipping myself with knowledge, particularly science, scientific research and statistics and believe that the numbers don’t lie!

I need help making sure I am living as best as I possibly can rather than living in a mess as I cannot do everything anymore.  I need help with personal care and some domestic tasks. I hope to find someone who is willing to learn about my diet and what I need to eat as support with cooking will be required.

My illness is unpredictable; sometimes I am exhausted but on a good day I would like to go out for some fresh air.  This may require some driving, but this is not essential for the role as we can work around it.

  • Medication prompting/administering
  • Personal grooming

  • Able to both follow instructions and work on own initiative
  • Hygienic, tidy and well organised
  • Fit and healthy to undertake the required duties
  • Patient and possess excellent interpersonal skills
