About the role
We are looking for Support Workers in Skellingthorpe to cover various shifts on a part time contract (16 hours per week). Shifts will be fitted around the person we support and will include sleep ins and waking night shifts; this will be discussed at interview.
In this service you will be supporting a lady who is determined, fairly independent and has some behaviours that challenge in her home. We are seeking Support Workers with patience who enjoy the same activities. She likes to go shopping, swimming, to the gym, pubs, discos and visiting garden centres and you will be required to accompany her. Her support will be 2:1 in the community and 1:1 support at her home. There is an element of manual handling due to the need of a wheelchair and a Sara Steady to get around when outside. She is fairly independent but on occasion needs support with some elements of personal care.
You will need to work closely/build positive relationships with her family and follow a positive behaviour support plan which is in place as it’s extremely important to get her support right.
