A guide for Personal Assistants


What is a Personal Assistant?

A Personal Assistant (PA) can support an older or disabled person to give them more independence and help them to live their life more fully.

Personal Assistants need to be good listeners, with a willingness to learn and respond. The job can be very flexible, offering part or full-time work on different days and at different times.

Some Personal Assistants work part-time alongside another job and others may have several clients they support. The role is also suitable for someone only wanting to work a few hours a week.

Due to coronavirus, Personal Assistants should take infection control precautions and/or training.
