The Homecare Assessment and Reablement Service provides short term support that helps people return home from hospital, or prevent them from being admitted to hospital, and regain their independence. Reablement is a type of support that is short term which helps someone to remain independent, by giving them the opportunity, motivation and confidence to relearn or regain some of the skills for daily living that may have been lost as a result of illness, accident or disability.
Due to an expansion of the Home Care Assessment and Reablement Service, we are looking for enthusiastic, committed and reliable individuals to join our successful team supporting and motivating individuals and building their confidence in their own homes and their community. We have part time hours 15-20 hours, 20–25hours and 25-30 hour opportunities available. All roles are on a shift / rota basis which include evening and weekend work. Rotas are organised well in advance; with two days non-working days per week and alternate weekends off work.
This is challenging and rewarding work providing intensive support for people in their own homes throughout Leicestershire for a short- term intervention.
You will work with Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists, to help deliver an agreed Reablement plan, to help Service Users identify and achieve their goals relating to a range of social care tasks such as washing and dressing, showering, meal preparation and helping people engage in community activities.
You must have the ability to communicate effectively, both verbally and in writing, to provide written observations of the person’s progress.
An NVQ 2 or Care Certificate is desirable but not essential as training can be provided to work towards these qualification. You will also develop in the role through practical assistance, support, advice, role modelling, encouragement and positive feedback.
