David Short


I offer a reliable Personal Assistant service to older people in particular with mental health conditions such as bipolar, anxiety, depression.

I am able to offer support with personal care, transport and escort to appointments or outings, shopping, small gardening jobs, simple maintenance, assistance with finance (banking and spreadsheets), medication assistance, and meal preparation.

I am based in the Eastbourne area, but do not mind travelling if you decide that I offer the right service for you. My charge is a flat charge of £15 per hour plus 45p per mile, this is any day including Bank Holidays.

I am available on a Monday – Friday basis, but will consider a weekend day for special occasions or appointments. Times can be flexible, but I am able to work anytime from 5am onwards.

I have over 40 years experience of working in the care sector and have NVQ level 4 in care, NVQ 5 in Operational Management, Registered Managers Award and I am a qualified trainer in many areas including Infection Control, Safeguarding, Moving and Handling,  and Medication Awareness.

I have also attained Reiki 1 & 2 and I am a level 5 student Reflexologist due to qualify in July 2018.

I am a member of the Support With Confidence scheme
