PA/PAs required for 49 year old man with MS

PA/PAs required for 49yr old man with MS, living in Hove, for 2hrs each morning Mon-Sun. Ideally, 2 PAs are required due to hoisting.

Duties would entail:
Sometimes I need assistance to pop my tablets, getting my breakfast, then hoisted onto my shower chair, where I can exercise on my static exercise bike for approx 1hr to keep my muscles mobile. I’m wheeled into the bathroom for a shower, where I need assistance with shaving and brushing of teeth. I generally go back to bed after my shower. Some light domestic duties, such as washing up/vacuuming, filing paperwork, may be required during these 2hrs.

An extra 3hrs for one weekday (a total of 5hrs, preferably on a Tuesday, but this can be negotiated) is required to escort me to the MS Centre in Southwick for oxygen treatment (this takes approx 1hr 10mins). I have an automatic, wheelchair accessible car, for which you can be added to the insurance. You’d need to drive me home, and I’d have another shower, before I go back to bed again. A clean driving licence is required, plus references, as well as an enhanced DBS check. If you can't drive, then a taxi or bus could be an option. I have a young cat, so you must like animals.

This totals to 19 hrs a week, but these can be negotiated, even if you can only do a few of those to help each week. Male or female PAs can apply, and must have a good sense of humour. This is a permanent position, so candidates who have been furloughed, need not apply - really sorry. Non-smokers only need apply please.
