Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council’s Reablement Service provides short term support to individuals following a discharge from hospital or to prevent hospital admission. At our last inspection we received a CQC rating of Good across all five key lines of enquiries.
The role involves providing personal care, administering medication, meal preparation, therapy activities, social and emotional support to adults living within the Borough of Stockton.
We are looking for two caring, enthusiastic and dedicated individuals who can demonstrate and deliver a high standard of person centred support, focusing on an individual’s needs.
Our focus is on empowering and enabling individuals to live as independently as possible within their own home.
The post will require you to work between the hours of 7am to 10pm. You will work to an agreed 7 week rolling rota covering 365 days. You will need to be flexible to meet the changing demands of the Reablement service.
To be successful you will need a Level 2 Diploma in Adults Health and Social Care or equivalent, and relevant care experience. Good communication skills and a flexible, responsive attitude in your work are essential.
Should you feel you can offer these qualities we would love to hear from you.
Employees are required to use their own transport to travel between calls for which a car mileage payment will be made.
