Respite PA for Spinal Injured 40 year old man

I am after a PA to cover respite for when my main carer has time off.
The carer would need to have training in house the week prior to the time off being taken by my main carer. 5 mornings training 8am - 11:30am.
My current carers work 8am - 6pm and my main carer is on call 24/7 (this is something she isn’t paid for)

The position is available for the carer to work the 8-6pm (which would be £125 for the day) or live in for the time period at £200 a day. You’d not be expected to work over the 10 hours but you’d be on call for the time period if I was to need you during the night hours.

Once you’ve been signed off, from my training by the district nurse - I would then need you to come in 1 morning a month to keep your competency levels up due to the nature of my disability and the level of person care I need.

I am wheelchair bound and rely on my staff performing bowel manual evacuation with digital stimulation.

All training for my care is given in house by my main carer and you’ll then be signed off by a nurse as competent for the job.

My carers days needed for covering are Thursday - Sunday.

Thank you for reading.
