Looking for experienced Personal Assistant (driving licence required)

£10 per hour

I am looking for a genuine and good-natured PA to support my son who is 29 whilst I work. I work on a 4 week rolling rota, up to 144 hours a month. I typically work 2 days in a row. My shifts are 8am-9pm, with a break from 2pm-4pm. 

My son currently attends two day clubs. One on a Wednesday and Friday 10-3, so if I am working I will only require someone to help get him ready and to drop him off at his day club in Winton in the morning, and be with him from 4pm until I get home around 9pm in the evening. 


He does require some personal care when getting ready for his clubs- particularly help with showering, shaving and dressing. 


My son is on the autistic spectrum. He is kind-hearted and lovely to be around, with a good sense of humour and is up for trying some new things. He is laid back and not at all troublesome. He loves being out and about and going on public transport. He especially loves trains and buses. He enjoys doing baking, watching DVDs and having time to relax at home in the evenings.


I am looking for someone who is energetic and will enjoy spending time out and about whilst also chilling in the evening at home. Preferably someone with experience with Autism. Mainly I am looking for someone who I can rely on to have fun with my son, who is proactive and will enable him to enjoy life to the full.
