Guardian Homecare are looking for reliable, flexible and committed individuals for positions as Crisis Care and Support Workers in Poulton-Le-Fylde, Preesall, Knott end-on-sea, Hambleton (FY6).
This is an exciting opportunity to work on a service that is much more fast-paced and varied than typical Homecare support.

Support may be required with activities such as personal care, cleaning, shopping, exercises and social activities. Each individual will have their own support plan identifying their specific needs. Close monitoring and feedback will be an essential part of the position.
Opportunities are also available for sit-in and overnight work within our crisis service.
Previous experience working in the community environment is desired, although full training and development will be provided. You must also have access to a vehicle for work purposes.
We offer competitive rates of pay from £9.00 and Mileage paid at £0.15p per mile.
All suitable candidates are required to undergo an enhanced level criminal record disclosure.
