How a Personal Assistant (PA) can help you

If you have care and support needs, a PA can help you live as independently as possible at home.

Every PA role is unique and can be tailored to suit your care and support needs, giving you full choice, control and flexibility.

For example, a PA might support you with personal care, for activities in your home or when you are out and about.

You can recruit and employ your own Personal Assistant and our partner, Independent Lives, has an experienced team of advisers available to guide and support you through this process.
