Is this the job for you?
Do you have a caring and compassionate nature? Do you want to make a difference in someone else’s life? Being a Care Support Worker could be the perfect career for you.
It’s ideal if you have a previous care background but this is not essential as full training will be provided – in fact some of our best carers have never worked in care before.
Working for us you will have the opportunity to learn and develop a wide range of skills and will be encouraged to study for NVQ levels 2 & 3 in Social Care.
Commitment to some weekend and evening work is essential as is a full clean driving license and use of a car.
Some of the things our Carer Support Workers do:
- help with dressing and undressing
- help with mobility
- help with feeding
- bathing in bed/bathroom/chair helping with personal hygiene
- help with management of continence
- help with medication
- helping the person with a disability outside their home
- help with getting up and going to bed
- help with emotional support to the person with care needs and their carer(s) as part of the caring team
- You may be asked to undertake other duties, but we will give you all the training you need to feel confident in your work
