Female Personal Care Assistant – Thirsk – D695

I am a 41yr old invisibly disabled single Mum to a 9yr old boy. My lovely PA is sadly leaving, so I am looking for a friendly and equally committed Female Personal Care Assistant to take over my care needs.

There are 20 hours per week available, the hours are: from 9.30am – 12.30pm Monday to Friday and one hour at teatime, suggested 4.30-5.30pm.

The rate of pay is £10.00 per hour

Duties are:

To support me to keep my home clean and tidy so that I can use my strength and energy to be a Mum.

You will be responsible for cleaning my small 2-bedroom, 1 bathroom home. Changing bed sheets and laundry, filling and emptying the dishwasher and a very small amount of ironing.

I’ve recently had treatment for my shoulder which allows me to wash my own hair, however, if my condition worsens again, I may need your help to wash my hair.

You will be happy to use my chosen environment friendly cleaning products and be happy to take direction as to how I like things to be done in my house and then use your initiative to complete tasks

I need help to declutter and organise our belongings, file paperwork away, to manage my diary, reminders to attend appointments, meal preparation, batch cooking and weekly food shopping. Therefore, it is essential that the successful applicant must have their own car (I will pay petrol / wear and tear costs).

We have 2 cats, an occasional visiting friendly Labrador, a fish and snake (that you never need to see!) The role does not include walking the dog.

To help me be part of society and occasionally go for a coffee together I may need your assistance to push me in my wheelchair.

I am looking for someone who is looking to commit for a minimum of a year in this role. Please do not apply if you’re just looking to fill a gap as the process of hiring someone is an exhausting, lengthy process and I cannot quickly find a replacement which leaves me vulnerable.

A DBS is required for this position

Exception under the Equality Act (2010)- the post is only open to females due to the personal assistance required.
