Support Worker – Elderly Care
Temp – Perm
Your new company
A small residential setting that provides supported living and care for up to 62 residents aged 50 and above, the home is registered to support residents with dementia, learning disabilities, physical disabilities and sensory impairments, specialising in alzheimers/dementia, cancer care, hearing impairments, visual impairments, parkinsons disease and palliative care. Each resident has their own en-suite room with a TV and a lovely set of furniture – they are close to local amenities and love to get out and about and explore the community. The setting has an extremely good reputation and a supportive team of support workers who provide full care to the residents.
Your new role
Your role as a support worker will not be without its challenges but it is a vital, yet one of the most rewarding roles you can do – it doesn’t feel like work when you’re having fun and building relationships with the other support workers and residents. The daily duties are but are not limited to: helping to maintain a healthy and safe working environment for all service users, support workers and visitors, helping the residents to get ready for the day (supporting them with personal care needs – in regards to their PCP (Personal Care Plan)), supporting them during meal time and when out in the community with any activities they may wish to take part in. You will take on the role of a key worker which means that you will be expected to form accurate records, case notes and work using a person-centred approach which is tailored to each individual.
Full time Range of shifts throughout the week (including weekends and evenings)

NVQ Level 2 or 3 within a similar setting is desirable
