Interested in recruiting a Personal Assistant/Carer?

Employing personal assistants (PA’s) / carers can improve your independence significantly – you can choose who you want to support you, the tasks they need to do, and when you need them. Purple know that it can also be quite daunting but good information and advice can really make a positive difference.
