JOB TITLE Personal Assistant

 

Background to the job

I am a 58-year-old lady, looking for a carer.   I have a wide range of hobbies and interests, including music, history, gardening, art, and cooking a variety of healthy food which I need help to prepare. You must be an animal lover as I have a cat.

I am looking for a bank worker, so would require you to have availability on an ad hoc basis, as there is often scope for extra hours to cover staff holidays, or sickness.

 

Hours / Times of Work

8am-8am 24-hour shift, which includes a break time of 3 hours, this is usually after lunch, but flexibility is required depending on what is happening in a particular day. You will be required to do a sleep in, however I rarely require support overnight, so disturbances are minimal. There is a separate bedroom for staff.

I currently have spaces in my team for Saturdays and alternating Sundays.

 

 

Rates of Pay and other Benefits

£300.30 per 24 hr shift + double pay on bank holidays.

 

Main Duties and Responsibilities

 

  • To help with personal care, including hoisting in and out of my wheelchair.
  • I also require help with basic housework i.e. bed making, cleaning, vacuuming and cooking which I enjoy participating in.
  • You will also need to assist me with a weekly shopping trip to Tesco’s on the dial-a-ride bus service.
  • I have a cat and you will need to help me look after him.
  • Occasionally I like to go out and you will need to accompany me on these journeys.
  • At times I have hospital appointments and will need you to attend the appointments with me.
  • I enjoy being read to due to my failing vision.

                PPE will be provided when it is necessary.
