PA is much like a Carer, a person who will work to professional Standard and support you as you require. You can decide when you would like your PA to visit, either on a regular basis or only when you need them. You don’t need to decide what you would like the PA to do until they arrive, the PA will support you however you require on the day.

Maintaining your dignity is of paramount importance to us, which is why our PA will ensure you feel comfortable at all times.
