Lucy has independent mobility in her electric wheelchair, but requires assistance in many areas.

Lucy may ask you to do some shopping or you may accompany her to do it.
You will assist Lucy to get up and ready for work quickly and on time. You’ll then accompany her to work and be available for her personal care needs, but she’s largely independent at work. During her working day you may be required to run errands and take messages etc.
During the night, Lucy may need assistance to use the toilet or repositioning, however it will mostly be a sleeping night shift.

Lucy enjoys being out and about in London. She has a busy social life and enjoys spending time with friends. This can include going for drinks in a bar or meeting for dinner and shows. She is somewhat of a night-owl. It is essential that you are comfortable with this aspect of the role – your role is to enable Lucy to live her life how Lucy wants to. We are looking for someone who can enjoy these activities, while knowing when to give Lucy space.
