My active, happy, bubbly, Barbie loving, crafting fanatic, chatterbox of a daughter is looking for somebody to support her so that she can attend Brownies once a week. There would also be additional work during school holidays.

My 8 year old daughter is completely independent in all activities but will need a personal assistant to keep a very close eye on her whilst she is engaging in clubs and fun activities. Having a diagnosis of epilepsy means that her personal assistant would need to watch, react and provide emergency medication when she has a seizure.

Full training, shadowing and a comprehensive induction would be provided so that you feel confident taking on this role. My daughter’s epilepsy is being treated with medication, but we are not quite at the point where we can say that the medication is controlling the seizures. Your support could make a real difference to my daughter’s life as with your support she would be able to join in activities that she loves.

Duties include:

  • Medication prompting/administering
  • Transportation

  • Administering emergency epilepsy medication when seizure starts & calling emergency services
  • Constant supervision/monitoring
  • Preparing drinks/snacks/meals

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
