About the PA
Additional information about working hours
I have all my qualifications and training as a Support Worker including care certificates, record keeping, health and safety, Working with vulnerable Adults, Dementia and Epilepsy training and many more.
I have experience in working with adults living with mental health and physical disabilities and also the elderly. I absolutely love my job. I care so much for people and enjoying being a support or care worker. I have been working as a PA but only a couple of hours a week, so I would like to try and work a little bit more doing this.
I have experience in helping people who have physical disabilities or who are bed bound. I have also cared for people with epilepsy, dementia, and completed training for this. There is always someone around the corner who is looking for a little bit of company or help around the house and I feel that I am a great person for that. I am so intrigued when people are talking to me, and I feel that listening to people is very important.
I have worked with a lot of adults that suffer with their mental health such as Autism, ADHD, minor or major learning difficulties. I have worked in the community with the elderly and cared for people that are disabled/bed bound. I have also used bed hoists to transfer from bed to chair and visa versa.
I feel that being a PA/ carer is something that comes naturally to me. For some people, they find caring can be quite intimidating, but I do not feel that way. Everyone is different in their own way and when I am working, I always put the clients first. I ask them what they would like to do, where they would like to go and how can I help them. I am a good listener/ companion and feel that I can give the right advice when needed. I respect people’s boundaries and understand to take my time with people.
I can drive but I prefer to stay local to where I live. I love this type of job and feel that I would be great in continuing as a PA.
