What This Role Entails:-

Each post will involve 3 shifts per week, some day shifts, some nights, totalling 33.5 hours per week for each post.
The job role involves, personal care (hoisting, bathing, assistance to eat, etc), medical care (changing my Suprapubic catheter and catheter care (training will be given), and checking on any bodily changes etc) household duties (cleaning, cooking and laundry) support when out and about and help during my voluntary job as Chairperson with a charity, assistance when attending the theatre, cinema and social events, eating out etc. This is an enjoyable job!!
Training will be given. From time to time I will require my PAs to work flexibly, this is to make sure I have all shifts covered due to PAs being on annual leave etc.
This position is in my adapted bungalow in Canterbury, Kent.

P.A Requirements Needed Are As Follows:-
Happy, chatty, flexible, must be reliable and capable of taking instructions for my support needs, without taking over. I am able to think for myself even though I am unable to attend to my needs. Good understanding of spoken and written English. The position is ideal for reliable individuals who are outgoing and eager to learn the role and help me enjoy my life.
Knowledge of moving and handling and supporting someone with complex needs is desirable.
