JOB TITLE Personal Assistant

RATE OF PAY £9.18 per hour
LOCATION My own home
I am a twenty-five year old male with autism and with current mental health difficulties diagnosed as psychosis. I live with my step-sister and her husband.
I am a vulnerable adult who needs prompting with most aspects of everyday living. I need accompanying during everyday activities due to being easily distracted, and am unable to follow instructions without a high level of one-to-one support. I have difficulty processing information and sequencing tasks, and need frequent prompts. I have difficulty understanding boundaries in social situations. I can appear reserved, with difficulties initiating, holding and appropriately ending interactions.
To help me remain as independent as possible, I need help with my time management, organisation and administration of my outside activities, and where appropriate being accompanied in access to the community.
My personal assistant will be directed by and accountable to my step-brother-in-law and step-sister.
My personal assistant will be required to do the following tasks and may be asked to carry out other tasks of a similar nature.
