PERSONAL ASSISTANT REQUIRED FOR SOCIAL SUPPORT ON SATURDAYS (1PM – 5PM) (POSTED 22/10/2021)
WHO I AM:
I am a very sociable 19 year old lady with Cerebral Palsy.
I live along in my Extra Care flat.
I attend college weekdays from 9:30am until 3:30pm.
I enjoy spending time listening to music, watching American football, playing games on the Wii.
MY DAILY ROUTINE:
I wake up 7am and go to bed by 7:30pm.
During the day (when I am not at college) I am supported by carers five times a day (7am, 12:30pm, 3pm, 5pm and 7:30pm). They support me with; hoisting me from bed to wheelchair, personal care (pad changes/showers), getting dressed, making me meals / drinks and handing me my medication.
I am looking for a female Personal Assistant to provide extra support to me on weekends (in addition to the above support) in the following areas:
* ADMIN TASKS; Help me with admin tasks; opening post, completing paperwork, college work / online learning
* KEEP ME COMPANY; having conversations, playing the Wii with me,
* TAKING ME SHOPPING; I enjoy going to Primark and Costa Coffee.
* SUPPORT back up for when I go out with my boyfriend / friends (ie help me if my wheelchair stops working, support with passing food/drink)
* EMOTIONS: I struggle handling my emotions and frustrations at times. I will need support and guidance on how to manage these situations and for a PA to provide reassurance and calmness.
* BOUNDARIES; I will need support around relationship boundaries and behaviours. For example, I can sometimes get fixated on an issue and have difficulty letting go. I will need a PA to be firm and honest with me and allow me to talk through my frustrations to prevent situations/anxieties from escalating.
* PERSONAL CARE; I may need support wiping my face and ensuring my hair is kept out of my face and maintaining my dignity when out and about.
