What is a Personal Assistant?

Personal Assistants (known as PA’s) are employed by individuals, who may need support due to age or disability, to assist them to lead the lives they choose.

Personal Assistants carry out a wide range of tasks within their role. Different people will require PA’s to provide support and/or care to meet their individual needs. These tasks can include support with washing and getting dressed, cooking, eating and also support to get out and about and do the things they need to do.

A PA must understand that each person they support is an individual with specific requirements and that their role is to support them to have choice and control.
