Are you someone kind with a positive outlook on life?

I am a 43-year lady, looking for a chatty and bubbly PA to work alongside me to prep and cook meals, help with paperwork, and most importantly enable me to get out and about for walks or have a drink at a local café.

I had a stroke 3 years ago and until then I was an able-bodied person. I use a wheelchair and have epilepsy so will need someone who is trained in this or someone willing to train.

I am a quiet and anxious person. So having someone who can make me feel at ease and bring me out of my shell is a must. As we get to know each other, I can promise there will be giggles and plenty of laughter along the way.

  • Moving and handling

  • Patient and possess excellent interpersonal skills
  • Honest and cheerful

  • Able to speak and read English to a reasonable standard
