ABOUT THE JOB
The role of Support Worker is to assist people within their own homes. The role is varied as you will carry out tasks that might usually be done by a relative, or a close friend, but in a trained, professional and knowledgeable way. The type of care that you provide will be unique to the person you support, and will vary from person to person, but may include any or all of the services that we offer.
We will provide all the training that you will need. No previous experience is necessary but you will need to have an unconditional positive manner towards all service users and a desire to help them enjoy their life no matter what their condition is. Can you make someone’s day better?
You will need to commit to providing care at the times and places you are tasked to deliver it. Without you someone may miss vital medication, or be left at risk of having their safety or dignity compromised. So, your reliability must be flawless and your timekeeping must be impeccable.
Help with getting up and getting ready for the day or settling in for the night, washing, bathing, and toileting.
Domestic tasks such as laundry, cleaning, tidying, shopping, preparing and cooking meals and taking people out to the shops, doctors or social events.
Supporting people with more complex needs such as, end of life care, supporting people with acquired brain injury, or those living with long-term conditions such as dementia.
Regardless of the physical assistance provided, it is often the emotional support and connection that people receiving the support have with their support workers, which makes the difference to them.
