Individual employer c/o Ayrshire Independent Living Network
Job Reference: – 4/Girvan/SB
Job Title: Personal Assistant
Pay £10.00 per hour and 5.6 weeks AL pro rata
Average 4 and a half hours per week for each worker.
Two PAs are sought to assist an elderly lady with personal care. This lady lives in Girvan and, at present, requires assistance from one person for around one hour every morning. This assistance centres on showering and dressing, but also involves attending to physical health problems. Assistance with domestic tasks and light housework duties (e.g., loading washing machine) would also be expected at times.
The lady has heart failure and struggles with breathlessness. However, she is mobile to a certain extent and does her best to maintain independence; at present, therefore, the job would not require constant lifting or physical support. This lady is intelligent and friendly; she has hearing difficulties but no cognitive deficits.
Total hours per week: 8.75, to be split between two people.
Suggested work pattern: 1 hour every morning, from around 9.30 to 10.30. In addition, 1.75 hours on one day per week, timing flexible.
It is hoped that the two PAs can communicate with each other and co-ordinate times to ensure that the client always has assistance in the morning. If you apply for this post, it would help a great deal if you could indicate the times and days that you could commit to (or the times committed to other duties).
Probationary period of 6 months.
