Description
As a member of my caring PA team, you’ll be responsible for a wide range of tasks that can vary by the day, so an amount of flexibility is required. Some of the main duties include:

• Accompanying and assisting me in my daily life and task's
• Cooking simple vegan food
• Pet care
• Administration of medication and regular stock-taking
• Attending appointments
• General housework and light gardening
• Occasional assistance with personal care
… and all sorts of other things!

Most importantly, you will share my passion of adventuring outdoors with my assistance dog, socialising (going for coffee & vegan food) and being an active member of the community.
I'm a wheelchair user and due to the nature of my conditions, my needs can fluctuate on a daily basis. I have an AMAZING assistance dog to help with many tasks (and a cat who is friendly but not quite so helpful!), so you must be comfortable around animals.
You’ll need to have a caring personality as well as a strong work ethic, and be able to keep a level head in stressful situations. Additionally, you need to be adaptable in the role and responsive to my needs; I am looking for someone who has a person-centred approach.

Essential:
• A caring disposition
• Genuine enthusiasm and a can-do attitude

Preferable:
• A clean, full driving licence
• Appropriate training/experience

Please note, if you are successful in your application for this role you will be employed directly through the individual and not Independent Lives.
