You must be resilient, flexible and composed in your approach as this will be a challenging environment to work in, although equally rewarding. You will understand the importance of reflective practice and be involved in debriefs and incident analysis to ensure the best possible outcomes for the individual.
Whilst no two days are the same typically, you'll help the people we support with everyday challenges such as personal care, meal preparation, housekeeping, medication, attending health appointments, maintaining relationships and taking part in hobbies & activities. Crucially, enabling them to carry out tasks, chores and hobbies that most people take for granted but are meaningful to the people we support.
Due to the needs of the individual you will be supporting, this is a female only role and you will have previous experience within the care sector.
We have a contract available for 35 hours per week which includes working a mix of earlies, lates and waking nights.
