Holiday cover, emergency cover and sickness cover (posted 04/07/2022)

I am looking for a female personal assistant who is able to be a ‘back-up’ for my current 2 members of staff. This person will be able to fulfil duties that are usually carried out by current pa’s in case of emergency/holiday/sickness cover.
Duties to include:
Personal care all aspects of
Small amount of meal prep
Hoist is used for transfers
Drinks preparation

The right person for the role would be someone who is very caring, likes animals, has hobbies, enjoys going out and likes a good chat, these are very important to me.

About me: I use a wheelchair and require a lot of support, I rely on my carers to help me live the most independent life possible. I live with my brother, two dogs and many tropical fish. I partake in a lot of arts and crafts and take courses for these.
At home, I use a hoist for transfers to and from my electric wheelchair and although already being trained to use them would be great, my carers are happy to train you on mine. I would like my carers to have some previous experience in care and to have a DBS check.
When work arises, we all work together to be able to cover the necessary visits, so even if for example you are unable to do a tea time one day it can be sorted between the carers.

If you feel that you can work with us when required then please get in touch, good rate of pay for the right candidate, video call interview first.
