Further information: A Personal Assistant (PA) is required to support an elderly gentleman in the HU6 area of Hull who requires care in his home.  The PA will need to ensure he can use his home safely.  He does not always ask for support when he needs it so the PA will have to anticipate his needs; the employer will guide the PA around this.

This gentleman’s disability affects his cognition and communication, and also affects his mobility.  The PA will need to ensure that he has access to sufficient nutrition and hydration (eating and drinking including meal preparation) and also support him with toileting and continence care as he is doubly incontinent.   He will require support to maintain his personal hygiene.

The PA will also need to support this gentleman to maintain his health via medication administration and management.  It will also be an important part of the PA role to keep this gentleman safe as he has had falls in the past.  He can become anxious and the PA will need to be a source of re-assurance.

Applicants will be able to demonstrate warmth, compassion and unconditional positive regard for older disabled people.  You will be able to develop trusting relationships based on empathy and support.

Important Information: “Owing to the nature of this position, any offer of employment will be subject to a satisfactory checking report from the Disclosure and Barring Service, the cost of which will be met by the local authority/employer.”
