They are home-based, but you will be required to attend the Sir John Robinson Way site for meetings, supervision and training.

Due to the creation of a countywide community reablement team, we are seeking dynamic individuals with a passion for both providing care and helping people to live as independently as possible.

The role is both demanding and exciting and you will be responsible for visiting people in their own homes to introduce the service and plan support that is based on a person’s abilities and what they do well. This will also include ensuring safe levels of health and safety and taking into consideration any issues that stop a person becoming independent should they be unable to make their own decisions.

You will help people to be independent so they can undertake their personal care, do meal preparation and take medication through support that is dignified, respectful and places that person at the centre of your care.

  • · Promote the principles that give people choice and control in what they want to do
  • · Take a personalised approach to supporting people
  • · Provide care and support with dignity and respect
  • · Take pride in the quality of the work we do

If you share our values, we would love to hear from you!
