Empowering customers to live independently and enjoy their well-earned retirement! That’s when it hits home!
We have a fabulous opportunity for you to join our community wellbeing scheme which opened in August 2020. We’re located in the beautiful seaside town of Scarborough on Scalby Road which is very close to the town centre which can be reached by good public transport links or by car (you can almost smell the fish and chips!)
We offer high quality living in our 63 beautifully designed apartments with a variety of on-site facilities including assisted living technology through Tunstall, wellbeing and care provision, restaurant, caf, hair/beauty salon, communal rooms and picturesque landscaped gardens. It is a real hub within the local community. Supporting our customers who are aged 55+ with varying care and support needs to live independently in their own home and enjoy their well-earned retirement!
As Reablement Worker, you’ll be supporting our customers who have a range of support needs including frailty and dementia, helping them to regain or maintain their independence and live well in their own home by carrying out every day daily living activities by themselves. You’ll also be required to help customers who have more complex needs which will include personal care, bathing, toileting and getting dressed. No two days are the same because everything we do is “person centred” around our customers. So, you might be helping with personal care, issuing medication in the morning, supporting them to cook their lunch and a bit of shopping in the afternoon. We even help customers to go on holiday!
You’ll assist in the delivery of tasks that are based on our customers personal support plans, ensuring every customer feels valued, respected and their dignity is maintained. You’ll also work with closely our Lead Reablement Workers and external agencies to support our customers.
When you join our brilliant team, you’ll be reporting to Bridie, our Registered Manager and working alongside Karen our Community and Wellbeing Manager who both have a wealth of experience in the area.
We’ll be providing 24-hour support to our customers, so you’ll work on a rota basis, with split shifts between the hours of 7am – 10pm taking your turn to work days, evenings, weekends and bank holidays. You may from time to time be required to do some occasional nights in emergencies. We need you to be flexible to meet the needs of our customers, but in return we’ll give you the time you need to spend time doing the things that matter to you.
You’ll have a positive can-do attitude and be passionate to help us make a big impact on our customers’ lives along with shaping this brilliant service! Your empathy will really shine through as will your ability to empower customers to live their best lives.
To make sure our customers are well supported, it’s important that you have worked in a supported housing environment before, be willing to provide a range of personal care and understand CQC requirements. You’ll hold a Level 2 Diploma in Care and will have experience of empowering customers, risk management and supporting them through their care plans. Don’t worry, we won’t drop you in the deep end, we’ll nurture your talent, help you understand how things work at Home Group and you’ll have a fantastic induction with ongoing learning and support.
If you have experience of providing reablement focused support, then this would be the cherry on the cake! To make sure that we keep our records straight, and customers safe, it's important that you are technologically savvy (or at the very least not a technophobe!).
When you join, you’ll need to have a valid Enhanced Check under the Disclosure and Barring Service. The great news is that we will pay for that to be done if you don’t have a transferrable one.
