PURPOSE OF JOB
I require a personal assistant to help me with household tasks including cooking, cleaning, washing and other tasks such as cleaning the windows on regular basis. I am proud of my home and it is important to me that it is kept in good shape. I will be clear about what tasks you are expected to do and how I would like these do be done. You will never be asked to do anything that I would not do if my condition allowed me to.
No personal care is required but you may be asked to help with things such as helping me get my wheelchair into the shower. You should have a positive attitude and demonstrate a willingness to learn on the job and take on information.
Honesty is very important to me and it is essential that you show this at all times while working with me.
My personal assistant will be directed by and accountable to me in all aspects of their work. He/She must always ask what I require and not make assumptions about any aspect of the assistance I need or how it should be carried out. He/She should not carry out tasks unless we have first discussed it.
My personal assistant will be required to do the following tasks and may be asked to carry out other tasks of a similar nature.
q Support with cooking, cleaning, washing and other household tasks as required
q Assist with moving wheelchair when I require it
q Show a willingness to use initiative and learn on the job as well as a positive attitude towards your work

Any other request that I may reasonably make
