Working pattern: 16 hours with a sleep-in (10am-10am) throughout the week, including some weekends.
An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Personal Assistant to join Milestones Trust. We are a not-for-profit charitable organisation with a 34 year history of offering person-centred support to vulnerable people with learning disabilities, mental health needs and dementia.
Based in Stoke Gifford, with a basic of £9.53 per hour + excellent benefits, you will be responsible for supporting a gentleman with an autism spectrum condition and epilepsy to live independently in his own home and in the community.
“Hi, my name is Stephen and I am looking to recruit a personal assistant to support me in my own home in Stoke Gifford and to support me to access the community. You must be a car driver as I have my own car for you to drive. I am hoping to meet someone who shares the same interests as me; I like having a coffee in my local pub, train spotting and playing pool and skittles.
I’d like you to support me to maintain my independence and live life in a way that makes sense to me. Ideally, you’ll have a good sense of humour, be polite and respectful and be a good listener. I have epilepsy and you must be patient, observant and happy to go at my pace and adapt to my daily routine. Sometimes this means just being available to support me should I need you.”
