PA required in Ryde for Male in his 40’s – 4.5 hours per week (92944) JM

I am a male in my 40’s, that is looking for a self-employed Personal Care Assistant to provide support to me to do some elements of home care that I can not manage myself. I tend to do my laundry but struggle to put it away, I have my shopping delivered but need help to organise where it goes and rotate food in my fridge. I do microwave meals for myself, make drinks but I do need some help with elements of managing my diet and preparation of some foods and drinks. I do need some support to rearrange my home to make it easier for me to mobilise.
I have a diagnosis of Huntington’s disease which causes poor mobility, it also causes me to have involuntary jerking or fidgety movements of my limbs and body and I have difficulty speaking clearly. I do get tired and a little low at times. Recently my swallowing has started to be a problem and I have choked on food and drinks. I need help to ensure my thickening agent for liquids is ready for me most days, I would like support to make this mix as I struggle opening lids. I do my own personal care and do not need help getting washed and dressed, but having all my clothes organised for me to easily access would help.

I am an intelligent man with lots of interests and enjoy watching sports such as Rugby and motor racing as well as playing on computer games. I did go to the gym before lockdown and may want support to do this again.

My health has deteriorated further recently which has resulted in lack of routine and exercise. I may need someone that could also help me with doing more activities in my daily life.
