Maidstone Area

A Personal Assistant is required to provide support and assist our daughter on a 1:1 level, enabling her to achieve and thrive .

We require somebody with patience and kindness to buddy up with our daughter who has complex needs. She has a diagnosis of ADHD, ASD, Auditory Processing disorder & hype mobility.

The PA would need to be fair but firm, fun and energetic.

When in social situations she is generally in a fight or flight mode which can lead to impulsiveness and behaviour deterioration. She mimics a lot of behaviour to make it look like she is coping.

That said she can communicate well and be fun to be around. She has boundless energy and enjoys gymnastics, trampolining, fun fair rides, parks & swimming. She loves animals, she rides ponies and grooms them as part of equine therapy. She adores dogs, cats and just about anything furry.

We would need someone to assist her to participate in social activities – she is 13 years 4 months old and finds it difficult to make and keep friendships but doesn’t want to be with mum and dad wherever she goes. She deserves to have a little independence but because of her complex needs this make her very vulnerable.

She is medicated once a day  – we, as her parents, administer this.

She would need to be reminded to use the toilet but capable of doing so on her own.

She is a good eater and enjoys most foods, but needs to be reminded to drink and has no allergies.

We are based in Maidstone, Kent.

Please contact us if you feel you have the right skill set for our daughter on 07740 585480.
