This is an exciting opportunity to work within our Surrey-wide Reablement Service supporting some of our residents with a learning disability and/or autism to engage with a reablement programme.
Working within people's homes, we promote people regaining or acquiring daily living skills and general wellbeing in line with what is important and meaningful to the individual. Working autonomously, it will be your job to provide support with all daily living tasks, including medication and mobility. You'll be there to ensure dignity, choice and control is maintained for those people receiving the service. They will look to you for support and guidance, a helping hand and most importantly; the development of their reablement programme, allowing them to live a more independent and fulfilled life.
You'll come to us with a real passion to help others. A natural communicator, you will be able to adapt your communication style to deal with sensitive and sometimes difficult situations to meet the needs of this client group.
In return, you'll find that our support doesn't stop with people who use our service. At SCC, we are just as dedicated to the wellbeing of our staff. Joining us, you'll be supported from the beginning, whilst working flexibly. You'll also be given excellent personal development with an amazing set of opportunities, allowing you to progress in your career.
