    • PAs can help carry out a wide range of tasks including:

  • > helping someone get washed and dressed,  supporting them with their personal care
  • > shopping
  • > making meals
  • > leisure and recreation activities
  • > helping someone to get involved in their local community
  • > supporting someone at their work
