I am a young woman looking for personal assistant so I can be more independent. I have Cerebral Palsy and would like to start doing more things myself. I know what I need but need some support with completing the tasks which is where your assistance would be valued.

I need a personal assistant who can cook and prepare food the way I need, i.e. mashed well so that I can eat safely, and tasty! Nothing flash, just plain simple food.

Additional hours from 9.30 up to 15.30 may also be available at times, to support me when out and about, for example, going to the cinema or out for a meal.

Ideal candidates would be highly organised with a methodical approach, as a strict routine is important to me. An understanding of Cerebral Palsy would be an advantage but is not essential. There is also use of a hoist for which full training would be given. If you are able to drive my adapted van that would also be a bonus!


Duties include:

  • Eating and drinking assistance
  • Other relevant duties as required
  • Cooking
  • Bathroom assistance

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
  • Fit and healthy to undertake the required duties
  • Patient and possess excellent interpersonal skills
  • Honest and cheerful
  • Creative
  • Able to speak and read English to a reasonable standard
  • Able to always work to high standards of health & safety

  • If you are able to drive my adapted van that would also be a bonus!
