A guide for Personal Assistants

1. What is a Personal Assistant?

A Personal Assistant (PA) can support an older or disabled person to give them more independence and live their life more fully.

PAs need to be good listeners, with a willingness to learn and respond. The job can be very flexible, offering part or full-time work on different days and at different times. Some PAs work part-time, alongside another job. The role is also suitable for a student or retired person wanting a few hours a week.
