If you are in need of some support for your daily life you may be thinking about engaging the services of a PA or Personal (care) Assistant. A PA is a carer who works privately for you, so that you are in control of who you select and how they support you. They can help with all sorts of daily tasks at home, including domestic tasks, personal care, shopping, sorting out paperwork and they can also support you to get out and about.
