I am looking for an upbeat person with a good sense of humour. Just to make this doubly difficult, I am looking for 2 people with these qualities.

Are you good at getting people out of bed in the morning? If you have your own children, you may have had some practice or you may just be an early bird so why not put those skills to good use. I promise I will not be as grumpy as my children were when I tried to rouse them from their sleep.

One working day will be mainly supporting me with household tasks, I would love to get my house spruced up and looking lovely ready for when my grandchildren come round to mess it up again. The other day will be encouraging me to get out and about. I like musical theatre and swimming, but I don’t think I can do a rendition of ‘Spoonful of Sugar’ whilst swimming in the water, so let’s find some new things we can explore together.

There is some personal care involved so I am in need of female PAs and I hope that with your patience and understanding, you will bring out the best in me. I am easy to get along with and I am warm and caring. I just need some encouragement from you to get me out the house, enjoying the sun (when it graces us with its presence) and enjoying activities with my family.
