  1. I can assuredly tick off the numbers.

    Having humour, finding some new challenge, whilst rolling up your sleeves is what makes life worth living.

    Please feel free to get in touch if you still need help.

    Sincerely Charlotte


    • Thank you Charlotte for taking the time to write. I checked out your website and will definitely be in touch to share information on our organisations we have set up. Your story is very powerful.
      We have a wonderful team of PAs – most of who fit the job description. I wrote the blog after N came back from a weekend in Bristol – i was so impressed by the role of the PA, how hard she works with a big smile on her face, and how she is always energetic and enthusiastic – even after a 5 hour drive on the motorway. We have another job description of course that is a bit more formal – however, I think this is far better as it really describes what it takes to have a life – as you say – worth living. This can only be achieved through employing your own staff – I doubt any agency would be quite so person centred and risk taking. We have a team at the moment – and will be looking for a volunteer from overseas in the next month. the present one is from South Korea and she is leaving. Let me know if you know anyone from abroad who would like a very interesting experience!
      I will email you so we can stay in touch! Take care and keep up the good work.


  2. Well that sounds like an amazing job description and the entire reason I entered the care profession so long ago, if you are still looking for assistance please feel free to get in touch
