More about the role:
The Staff in Our Urgent Homecare Falls Response Service provide support to people living in their own homes who have experienced a fall.
As a Support worker, you will need to be comfortable taking the initiative as you will often be supporting people in their own homes and will be responding to their personal needs. For this invaluable role, you’ll step in at just the right moment and provide warm support when people feel most vulnerable. You will put their needs at the heart of everything they do, from helping to prepare meals and doing household shopping, to providing personal care including support a person with their dressing, bathing, or taking medicines.
To join us, you’ll be a self starter, passionate about supporting people to live the best life they can, you will enjoy working as a team and you will be comfortable working without supervision. Whilst no qualifications are required as training will be provided, an NVQ Level 2 in Care (or equivalent qualifications or experience) would be useful. This is a fulfilling, rewarding career that’ll see you become a lifeline for those you support.
You will be required to work to a four week rota to include AM shifts (7am to 2pm) and PM shifts (1.45pm to 10pm). Alternate weekend working is also required. You will need to have a full driving licence. A vehicle is provided whilst on duty. A driving assessment will take place as part of the interview process.
