As a Reablement Support Worker you will play an important role in helping people in your local community stay independent in their own homes for as long as possible by providing short term care and support. This is a rewarding role where you will be able to make a real difference by helping people regain the independence to continue doing the things they love. Your role will be to support your customers with daily tasks which they may be facing temporary difficulty with such as cooking, moving around the house, or bathing, and provide the help and guidance needed for them to get back to living independently.

Being part of this rewarding team, you will see the impact that your support can offer to the customers by gradually regaining their independence.

How do I know if I am the right person for the role?

You will need to be self-motivated, caring and passionate about offering support. You will work with a variety of individuals and so excellent communication skills and an ability to easily develop rapport play an important part of the role to help you offer the best support.

You do not need to have previous experience in care or as a Support Worker to be successful, as you will receive a thorough induction, in depth training and full support from your team to grow your skills and enhance your development.

As this role requires travel between different locations you must either hold a full and current driving licence and have access to personal transport or meet the mobility requirements of the role through other reasonable and suitable means.
