Welcome to Assistenz-Erklärt!

We are building a platform here that educates and informs about the topic of personal assistance. Personal assistance is an individual support for a person with specific assistance needs in their everyday life. This support enables the autonomy and self-determination of that person.

From the perspective of assistance, personal assistance means helping a person with various tasks and activities that they cannot or find difficult to manage alone. As an assistant, your role is to understand the needs and desires of the person you are supporting and assist them with everyday tasks.

The tasks can be diverse, such as accompanying them to appointments, providing support in household tasks, and assisting with personal care. Your workday will be based on the individual needs of the person you are assisting. You should be able to communicate clearly with the person, respect their preferences and boundaries, and build a trusting relationship.
