What you would be doing…
Support from a PA to help me get showered when I choose (dependent on my fatigue). Support with applying any cream for my body on my instructions.
Due to my Metabolic Syndrome I need to plan and eat a healthy nutritious diet. I need support from PA to prepare and provide my meals.
I need support with simple household tasks including washing up, cleaning kitchen work tops, and cleaning my bathroom after I have used it.
Some admin tasks and chasing up appointments etc. I need someone with me when I go to my appointments due to my fatigue and `brain fog`.
