PA Role & Training

No two clients are the same. It’s what makes this role challenging, but immensely rewarding! You will be working day to day under instruction from our client; many of whom prefer to use the term Personal Assistant or PA rather than carer.


Before starting work all Origin PAs attend a 5 day training course, in Lancaster. There you will meet all the Origin team. You’ll be taught what it means to be a PA and how you can help Make a Difference.  It is hands on and practical; to learn the skills you will need. PAs tell us that our experienced trainers make the induction course engaging, fun and confidence boosting.
