The Care at Home service has adopted a re-ablement model of service provision. We have moved away from the task and time approach, and ‘doing to’ or ‘doing for’ to ‘doing with’ and maximising service users’ long term independence and quality of life. The service now uses goal planning to re-able the service user to learn or relearn daily living skills and thus maximise their independence.
Home care work is both challenging and varied and, under guidance from the Social Care Coordinators, you will enable individuals to achieve as much independence as possible.
You should hold SVQ 2 in Health and Social Care (Adults), or equivalent level qualification, or be willing to work towards achieving this.
This post would ideally suit someone who has recent work experience in the social care field or similar. You will need the sort of personality that enjoys interacting with people and making a difference to their lives. If you are motivated, caring, honest, have a true desire to ‘work with’ people and have a sense of fun, then this could be the job for you and we are waiting to hear from you.
The post is subject to membership of the Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) Scheme in respect of regulated work with adults.
