The Role of a Personal Assistant

Bison Assist eLearning: The Role of a Personal Assistant

Some disabled people require daily additional support from a qualified assistant, often called a personal assistant or care assistant. This is a specialised role within the field of social care, and these assistants help disabled adults live as independently as possible – enabling them to carry out day-to-day activities and supporting them in a variety of ways.

This course will explore the ways in which you can aid a personal assistant in your workplace, giving you greater confidence in working alongside disabled people and their personal assistants. The best way to understand how you can support the assistant of a disabled person is to learn more about the scope of their role, what sort of assistance they provide, and what support they are qualified to give.

You will also understand more about your legal responsibilities in protecting the wellbeing of disabled people in your workplace. By learning how you can best support a personal assistant and your responsibilities in minimising safety risks, you can take steps to make your workplace more accessible to disabled people.

At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

Understand what being a personal assistant involves.
Know how the personal assistant recruitment process works.
Understand the funding options available to people with learning disabilities.
Know how to support a personal assistant in their role.
