The East Radnorshire Day Centre operates the East Radnor Home Support Service and due to expansion within the current service we wish to appoint a Home Support Worker.
Based in Presteigne; the service covers Presteigne, Knighton, Llangunllo, New Radnor and surrounding areas. You will be required to visit people within their own homes to offer support and assistance with a variety of different issues to enable and support independent living. Please note no personal care is involved as it is not a care agency role.
A confident; friendly personality, and the ability to communicate with service users, general enquiries and professional bodies is essential. You will need to be comfortable using a computer and there is some admin attached to the role, but full training will be given.
Hours of work are 26hrs per week. Days can be flexible in agreement over Monday to Friday, but working Wednesdays is a requirement.
On Call shifts are available to cover the out of hours emergency response.
Driving license is essential and use of own car is desirable.
You will be working with elderly vulnerable adults and a DBS check is a requirement.
To start ASAP, contracted until 31 st March 2021
