About the role
As a Relief Community Support Worker, you will assess the needs of individuals and develop plans to meet those needs. You will assist customers with their personal care needs and budgeting, as well as support with menu planning, shopping, cooking and keeping their home clean and tidy. You will help customers to understand their tenancy agreement, as well as offering support with decorating, simple DIY and home maintenance.
Care and support also covers health and wellbeing, with our team supporting customers to make and attend appointments with health care professionals, with safety and security, and with establishing and maintaining relationships with friends and family.
You will work within a flexible working rota to provide appropriate support for service users which includes sleep-in duties as required, paid at £41.00 per night. All applications will be subject to DBS checks and references.
If you share the Empanda ethos and values of offering person-centred care and support of the highest quality to adults with learning difficulties, then we would love to hear from you.
