A bit about the client

'I’m an international student from Switzerland at the University of Cambridge reading psychology in my first year. Due to my disability, which prevents me from moving my arms and legs, I require assistance for daily living tasks such as getting dressed, personal care, cooking, etc. To get around, I use an electric wheelchair to which I am transferred using an electric hoist.

At university, I am staying at a three-bedroom flat on campus and from there I will need help getting to lectures and practicals. During these, I need the PA to set up my computer as well as passing me the equipment needed (e.g. microscope). Although I cannot start working or studying without the help of the PA, once I am set up I am mostly autonomous.

I can only communicate verbally, which is why I appreciate clear and transparent communication between me and the PA, not only because it is so crucial for them to understand what I need but also since it is a key element to every healthy relationship in and outside of the workplace.

Besides studying, I meet with friends, watch series and movies, or write lengthy emails and whilst I understand that this is a working relationship first and foremost, I hope to have a good rapport with the PA and for us to do things socially outside of the caring relationship.'
