Lanark Short Breaks Service provides planned short breaks and emergency support to any adult person over 18 years with an identified learning disability and, who may, as well, have other physical needs. The service additionally supports Carers.
There are twelve beds at Lanark Close with one additional bed available to meet urgent need.
We are looking for a caring, enthusiastic and dedicated individual who can demonstrate and deliver a high standard of person centred support, focusing on an individual's needs.
Our focus is on supporting people with their personal care needs, helping people to be as independent as they possibly can be and encouraging their confidence in being able to do things for themselves with the minimum of support.
Part of your role will also be reassuring people and supporting them to make sense of the world and the complexities of relationships and situations.
You will work to an agreed 3 week rolling roster covering 365 days. You will also be required to be flexible to meet the changing demands of the service.
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.
At our last inspection we received a CQC rating of Good and we are continuing to aim to provide the best possible service for the people and their carers accessing the service.
