What is the role of a PA?
The duties of a PA vary widely and depend on what the person would like to do – what kind and when they need the support outlined in their care and support plan.
This could include supporting the person with:
- domestic chores (e.g. cooking, cleaning, shopping)
- social and leisure activities – (e.g. assistance to attend activities in the community)
- work and education – (e.g. assisting someone to and from work or college)
- personal care (e.g. assisting someone to wash and get dressed)
