Personal assistant (PA) / carer
A PA is employed by someone who needs social care, either because of their age or disability, to enable them to live as independently as possible.
PA's do not need to register with the Care Quality Commission (CQC). Anyone considering employing a PA should take steps to make sure that the PA has all the necessary paperwork before they are employed. More information about employing a PA can be found in our ‘Frequently Asked Questions’.
