Personal Assistant

Seven years ago I was hit by a truck while on a J1 visa in the US. I suffered a severe brain injury which means I require 24 hour care. I can understand everything you say, I communicate using a switch. I have very limited body movement but it is slowly getting better. I am a gentle person (more than before!) with a lot of motivation and hope.

I need a personal assistant who sees me as an equal. This person needs to help me with all personal hygiene, with eating and communicating, with getting into the wheelchair, basically with everything. I am interested in current affairs, history, music, Irish language and culture. I would like somebody who would talk to me. You could even speak to me a little in your language and I could learn it. And somebody with a good sense of humour.

I live at home, I have my own area at the back of our house in Drumcondra. The hours, with a decent rate, would be regular hours, between thirty and forty hours a week, we can come to an arrangement about this.

We can also provide training if you need it.
You can start as soon as you are able to.
