As a Home Care Support Worker, you will provide care to individuals, within their own homes. This will involve travelling between clients through the community in your own area of living (keeping your mileage lower). You'll perform a variety of tasks according to the Person-Centred Care Plan, this may change periodically dependent upon the needs and wishes of the service user. We're committed to giving you the best start possible and you will receive thorough training, including shadow training with an Experienced Worker before being expected to work alone.
Our team is growing and we have immediate opportunities for people to join us working either full or part-time. A full-time position will be 37+hrs per week while part-time can be flexible although we do ask for a commitment of 16 hrs per week as a minimum. You will be paid travel time and will assist you, should you need assistance with claiming more mileage allowance.
The needs of our service users can vary greatly, some will be in need of personal care to help them get up and dressed on a morning, bathing, taking medication and ensuring their nutritional needs are met. Others require domestic support, so you'll help them out around the house with general housework, laundry and shopping. You could also assist in more specific areas such as financial care by collecting their pension for them or helping to budget effectively and manage their bills. Some service users just need a little support to help them remain active socially, you might accompany them to activities such as local clubs or on days out.
As a Carer, you'll value kindness above all and keep the service user at the heart of everything you do. Our aim is to ensure that our service users receive the highest standard of care to live well independently. By joining us, you'll have a wonderful opportunity to support with all aspects of day to day living and see first-hand the difference you make to the lives of those you care for. Ideally, you'll have previous experience in a care environment but this is not essential.

You'll be friendly and approachable with the ability to quickly build a rappor and put people at ease, always having respect for those you care for and their dignity.
