Some people need an assistant in many of life’s situations, while others need less assistance.

What does a personal assistant do?
An assistant’s work can involve necessary day-to-day activities such as cleaning and preparing food. However, it can also involve providing assistance in connection with a grandchild’s confirmation or organising papers from housing cooperative meetings, going to work or a rock concert or assisting a child who has been invited to a classmate’s birthday party. As an assistant, your day-to-day work depends on what the person you work for wants to fill his or her life with.
The difference between work leader and employer
The person you apply to work for is called the work leader, and he/she is responsible for recruiting and supervising his/her own assistants. It is the work leader who attends to the practical day-to-day management, while Uloba is the formal employer.
If, for some reason, the person who needs assistance cannot function as the work leader, someone close to them will act as work leader on their behalf.
