Milton Keynes Council is developing new ways to support adults with Learning Disabilities, Autism, Mental Health issues and Older People in MK. We are seeking Personal Assistants.
Almost anybody can become a Shared Lives Personal Assistant, it is all about finding the person you fit best with. The most important things are being a good communicator, an interest in others and having the ability to respond to the needs of those around you.
Some people work as a Shared Lives Personal Assistant in addition to other employment.
A Personal Assistant, or PA, is someone who assists a person who has care or support needs in their own home and local community. As a PA, you will help the person you assist to live their life as they want to. People choosing a Personal Assistant tend to look for someone with similar interests to themselves so they can be supported to engage in activities they and you can enjoy together.
Most PAs are directly recruited and employed by the person that they are assisting although some PAs work on a self-employed basis.
If you think this type of work might be for you then you can apply to join the Milton Keynes Council Personal Assistants (PA) Register.
