Shana’s story

Read Shana and Elaine's story about the role of a personal assistant

Elaine is Shana’s PA. Shana has multiple sclerosis and employs a PA to help her to lead an independent life.

Shana says:

“The help I need at home varies depending on my condition which fluctuates day to day. My PAs ensure I stay safe whilst I shower and help me do things at home that I otherwise might struggle with. They also help me go to the gym to maintain my health and fitness and we have quite fun whilst I am working out”

Shana’s PA Elaine says:

“Supporting Shana to lead an independent life is my role from helping her stay fit at the gym to helping her in the kitchen and the work is rewarding and can be fun”.
