ABOUT PRIVATE EMPLOYER
I am just an Indervidual who is disabled and is looking to recruit a team of people. To provide daily care and support .
JOB DESCRIPTION
I am a young, outgoing lady who suffers with Hydrocephalus and mild Epilepsy, with a lot of determination and drive and I do not let anything hold me back.
I am seeking the support of a Personal Assistant to help me with essential tasks to enable me to live an independent lifestyle helping me to manage the daily challenges of daily living with Hydrocephalus. This limits the sensation on my left side and poor dexterity, in addition to this my feet turn outwards causing an unbalanced walking gait and poor balance and co-ordination, therefore I require daily support to help me complete basic daily living tasks, as I am going through the transition of independent living and would need this support as an enabler to my independent lifestyle and therefore the support I require. I would like to have an effective working relationship to support my independence both in and outside of my home environment, as I have a very busy lifestyle with my work commitments and social activities. Therefore by supporting and understanding my needs this would enhance all aspects of my lifestyle and achievements.

OBJECTIVES
Main duties
These are formed of three core areas and these duties may vary from day to day.
Personal duties:
• Getting in and out of the bath/shower safely – This is due to reduced mobility, balance and co-ordination in a damp surface environment.
• Putting mats down, getting the right temperature in the bath – This is due to reduced mobility, balance and co-ordination in a damp surface environment, as well as my inability to distinguish temperatures due to numb left side.
• Drying – This is due to poor mobility and sensation.
• Applying cream that helps with muscles - This is due to the pain I get in my back, ankles, legs and joints and assistance in applying the cream would be required.
• First aid.
• Cleaning any hazardous areas.
• Making up bedding.
• Changing bedding as and when required.

Domestic duties

• This includes the following elements: -
• All aspects of cleaning

• Washing/drying and ironing clothes
• Carrying laundry
• Putting rubbish out and bagging it
• Vacuuming
• General tidying, keeping surfaces clean, clutter and slip free, as well as providing support with more challenging task such as changing light bulbs, putting groceries away, lifting and carrying supportive equipment giving me a safe home living environment.

Social Duties:
Accompanying on daily journeys is required to help me with daily living tasks and support me with my mobility, welfare and safety both within and outside my home environment in the following areas:-
Negotiating uneven surfaces – Support is needed due to reduced mobility, balance and coordination and alongside limited sensation on my left and how this affects me, therefore guidance with mobility is needed when moving on different terrain to minimise the risk of stumbles and falls.
Climbing Stairs – This is due to reduced mobility, balance, co-ordination and limited sensation on my left and how this affects me. Therefore I would need to be supported when encountering steps in my daily travels to maximise my safety.

Breaking Down And Understanding Content Of Letters - Support would be needed to aid me in processing and understanding in order for me to understand the information and its context, therefore when reading letters I would need the support to ensure I fully understand what is required with my daily correspondents I receive.
