Problem recruiting male personal assistants
Hi I am mum to Dan who is a physically disabled electric wheelchair user. We are having some real problems recruiting male personal assistants. The quality of the people who have applied has been really poor for many reasons, inexperience, age not right, no personality, and many other reasons. I am of the opinion that to recruit the right sort of people we have to pay them more. I would be interested in how other people have resolved this problem.
