WHAT CAN A CARER OR PERSONAL ASSISTANT DO FOR YOU?

In short, the role of a carer or personal assistant is to support you so that you can lead as independent a life as possible in your own home. They may work for only a few hours a week, or several hours each day (or night) and help with a range of tasks such as:

  • personal care, such as washing, dressing and using the toilet
  • preparing meals
  • shopping
  • help with medication
  • driving or helping you get around, and
  • supporting family carers when they need a break
