Personal Assistant/ Carer
Desperately seeking women to work as personal assistants/carers to myself:
- supporting me to live independently,
- assist with personal and medical care,
- look after my house and
- enable me to go out and about; alongside returning to complete my PhD (this involves typing whilst I dictate).
- In addition, assistance is required to look after a young service dog in training.
- managing CPAP equipment
You need to be responsible and reliable to fulfil this rewarding and unique role. No previous care experience is necessary, but being adaptable and flexible is helpful. Confidence to drive a van would be welcome. The ability to travel, particularly to London, for regular hospital visits would be beneficial. You would be joining a team which covers my care 24 hours a day, including sleepovers (sleeping nights frequently have less than 3 interruptions per night).
Typical shifts range from 18:00-10:00 (the next day), 18:00-18:00 and 10:00-10:00 – hours can be discussed at interview. One full-time role, and two part-time roles are available, as we are aiming to double up on shifts more. It’s always good to have people around with a good sense of humour, and who are organised, motivated and able to work on their own initiative. Hourly rates start from £9.00 and sleepover rates start from £40.00.
