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 and others may have several clients they support. The role is also suitable for someone only wanting to work a few hours a week.

Please note: due to Coronovirus (COVID-19) it’s suggested that you take infection control precautions and/or training.
