Because we care.
Based in West Bridgford, Nottingham, UKPAs.co.uk is owned by Train For Care Ltd, a specialist care training provider. Below, we explain how the UKPAs.co.uk website helps both Personal Care Assistants and those seeking a little extra help to remain in their own homes.
Personal Care Assistants
Across the UK every single day of the year, thousands of Personal Assistants provide care to those who need a helping hand. This tireless unsung army of very special people have, until recently, enjoyed very little recognition or support. Training in the industry is targetted at full time paid carers and ignores the needs of those who may be looking after elderly relatives, a next door neighbour or a local resident.
UKPAs.co.uk provides support and training for those providing care services who are not working for an employer or agency. Our online training modules offer the knowledge needed to perform your role, and our support forum puts you in touch with other people like yourself. When changes occur that affect you, our qualified team update the training materials and provide you with an alert so you always stay ahead. Further, if you're ready to take on more clients, we match you to people in the local area looking for a helping hand.Register
Those needing care and support
Some people need a little help to stay in their own homes and avoid residential care - but employing a professional carer can be an expensive business. A Personal Assistant is the perfect solution: providing help and support with personal care and household chores. Your PA can help with jobs such as:
- Washing and dressing
- Changing pads or dressings
- Doing the laundry
- Visiting the toilet
- Household chores such as cleaning or maintenance
- Paying bills or filling out forms
- Walking the dog or feeding pets
- Leaving the house, perhaps to visit a centre or the library
- Preparing meals
- Attending school or college
- Driving you where you want to go
- Helping you to arrange a holiday
- Helping you to do your hobbies or interests
- Helping you to attend the dentist, doctor or hospital
UKPAs.co.uk puts you in touch with Personal Assistants across the UK who each offer a range of services. In contrast with dealing with an agency (where a carer will simply be chosen for you), you can select your PA and discuss your needs with them before you decide to take things further. You can also see which training modules each PA has completed, for your peace of mind.Register
We are a UK website that matches Personal Assistants with those looking for care. Personal Assistants can receive valuable training and promote their services; whilst those looking for help can find a PA with up-to-date training and experience.
