UKCIL Job Reference: c1c98021
Looking for a Personal Care Assistant to help support a 22 year old man with DMD (Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy).
Based in Westbury, Bath, BA13.
30hrs/wk - paying £12.9k part time (with FTE of £17.2k),
I’m a fairly independent male who is in his 20s. I have just completed my psychology degree at the University of York and am currently looking for work / possibly setting up my own CBT practice. In my own free time, I enjoy playing watching and going to sports events, socialising with friends and family, and listening to / playing music.
I require some help with certain aspects of daily living, including help with completing domestic tasks around my home, preparing meals, cleaning up afterwards, my personal care including washing particularly my feet and legs, dressing (outer clothes only), exercising (gym and swimming), and socialising. I have a motability car which I drive, and my PA could drive (although being able to drive isn’t imperative).
I am looking for a PA who is friendly, easy-going, and supportive. I’d want to work with someone who has a positive attitude and a great sense of humour. There will be times when I don’t need your support so it would be good if you are independent and able to keep yourself busy at these times.
Experience in manual handling would be ideal, although full training can be given to the right person.
A DBS check will be required and I will ask for two references - to be checked before the job is offered.
Thank you in advance.
