PA required for 18 year old boy

We are looking for an energetic and enthusiastic PA to support our lovely son in getting out and about, and accessing activities in the community. He is nearly 18 years old and has Di George Syndrome. He has a suppressed immune system so is very vulnerable to infections. This places him at extreme risk of Covid and therefore he cannot travel on public transport, or be around other people, crowded places, towns, shops etc due to infection risk at the moment.

He wears a hearing aid and is partially sighted in one eye so needs constant supervision when crossing roads/near traffic. He has moderate learning difficulties, anxiety and a social communication disorder which can make it difficult for him to manage activities and social situations. He likes going out for day trips, loves the countryside, animals, Drusillas on a quiet day, walking, writing reading, art. He is a kind, generous and sociable person once he gets to know people and has various interests including a love for animals and playing mini golf. We need someone for 5 hours per week on Saturdays. Experience with young people with complex medical/learning difficulties and anxiety is essential. Driving licence and own car would be a serious advantage as Alex cannot travel on public transport. If you have a dog then even better!
