What is a PA?
Personal Assistants (PA for short) are a type of support funded by social services to people who they believe to have a need for a support worker. PA’s are not carers and do not help with “personal care needs” which is physical support with things such as support using the toilet or bathing.
Some of things PA’s can support you with is:
- Planning and managing travel
- Domestic tasks (supporting with, not doing them for you)
- Managing medication
- Taking part in the community
There are many different ways you can use a PA to support you, please see the next tab.
