Care Workers at Level 2 are also expected to provide safe and appropriate personal care and support to citizens, in a way that maintains their dignity, maximises independence and gives them choice and control over the way their care is provided. This includes writing and maintaining individual person-centred care plans and the administration and provision of medication, as well as being prepared to work with citizens with different and varying needs.

Hours are worked according to a rota, including night time and weekend work.
