Personal Assistants (PA for short) are a type of support worker.
PA’s are not carers and do not help with “personal care needs” which is physical support with things such as using the toilet or bathing.
PA’s are a type of support worker who assist you with a variety of needs, such as (but not limited to):
- Planning and managing travel
- Domestic tasks
- Managing medication
- Taking part in the community
This means they will come and work with you to achieve your goals, they will not do it all for you but they will be there with you.
