Looking for a PA/carer

I'm a 31 year old with ME/CFS, POTS, chronic pain and some anxiety issues. I have been bed bound since January 2018 due to worsening symptoms and am only just beginning to be able to get out of bed occasionally again. I need daily assistance to live my life. This includes help with personal care, food prep, organisation and cleaning.

Job specification:

- 16 hours a week spread over 4 days - must be able to work on Monday, Friday & Saturday plus 1 other weekday

- Shifts 11am-3pm

- Potential cover when other PAs are unable to work/are on leave

- In central-ish Brighton (near Coombe Road)

- £9.90hr + standard statutory holiday and sick pay.

- Start date no later than first week of February

- Ideally able to work longer term (12+ months) but I will consider people who are available for a minimum of 6 months.

More about me & the role:

My health and energy levels are variable from day to day but I have been pretty much house-bound for the last 3.5 years. Currently, as I am bedridden with very low energy levels, I need someone who can pick up on what to do and what I need without consistent verbal communication. I can communicate a list of tasks via text or 'Wunderlist'. I am pansexual/bisexual so lgbtq+ applicants very much welcomed. I also eat meat and would need you to be comfortable cooking meat, fish and eggs and preparing food which meets the needs of my specific diet. Although I'm not so able to do these things currently I'm into crafts, feminist and queer politics, sci fi, tv and movies, drawing and similar.

In case of phobia and allergies: I live in a household which includes a large, friendly dog.

If you're interested please send a CV and any extra information you wish to include to .
