I’m looking for a PA who can provide cover for a whole weekend and occasionally at other times by mutual agreement. Dates to be agreed to fit in with your availability.
You must be patient and understanding and will be able to provide sensitive support when carrying out all tasks.
Experience of moving and handling is essential and experience with PEG feeds and catheters an advantage. (Specific training for these will be provided.) Ideally, you will also have experience of supporting people with complex needs, caring for those who have had a stroke, who have mental health conditions and challenging behaviour.
Reliability is essential.
A DBS check will be required for this position. You will be required to provide two satisfactory references.
