Care Assistant - Learning Disabilities Team - Driver Only
Posted 06 May 2021
Are YOU what we are looking for? Blackpool LD Services FY5
Would you like to get paid for “just being you?”
Would you like to put something back and do your bit in these hard times?
We are looking for people just like yourself to join our team of carers helping and supporting our vulnerable service users in their own homes
This is more than just a job, you will be helping elderly and vulnerable people to remain in their own homes whilst receiving the assistance they need to maintain a quality of life in these unprecedented times.
This post is for supporting an individual as part of our Learning Disabilities Team, you must be over 25 and have a full UK driving license, to be able to support the service user, this role will be particularly appealing to someone who loves being outdoors, easy going and self-motivated. Shift patterns will entail 9am to 9pm, 9pm til 9am waking nights and alternate weekends
Your visits are not just about the practical help that you will be providing, you are also there to support our service users emotional needs - they may live alone and be somewhat isolated from society. Which is why the relationship that a service user has with their carers is a very important one – a kind word and a smile from a carer can make our service users day!
Visits are 7 days a week, 365 days a year - sometimes more than once in a day on a rota – at varying times of the day, depending on what they need help with and will include:
You’ve never done a role like this before? - No problem!
Full induction training is provided followed by shadow shifts with an experienced carer. Ongoing training updates are available throughout your time with us. We will even support you to do you NVQ qualification.
We wouldn’t expect you to do this for nothing!! In return we offer:
Life experience is just as important as previous professional experience, be one of the people that make a difference.
