PA (care) - supporting those on direct payments
I work as a personal assistant (care/support work) on direct payments, and am looking for new clients. I live in Newport, Shropshire, and am happy to travel in a 25/30 miles radius, so this makes me available for quite a bit of Staffordshire. I might not always be able to receive a call, but if you email or text I will definitely respond when free.
At present I work casual/bank for Telford & Wrekin Council and Bethphage as a Support Worker and Carer, as well as having two small contracts on direct payments, and I would like to expand the direct payments work - I prefer being able to tailor my work with the client and focus on achieving goals (something that is hard to do working through a company), it gives greater job satisfaction.
The kind of work I do: personal care; household chores; cooking; driving; shopping; accompanying to activities; finances; meds. I have/work with learning difficulties, autism, dementia, acquired brain injury, schizophrenia. I have also worked with the elderly via AgeUK - shopping, chatting, general companionship. I will be gaining experience with youth services via Telford Council shortly.
