Rehabilitation Care/Support Workers
Job Title: Rehabilitation Care/Support Workers
Hours: Dependent upon Service User Needs – up to 37.5 hours per week
Base – Newcastle and surrounding area
The primary aim of Momentum Care is to enable people to create a home and a home life for themselves by providing support appropriate to their individual needs.
We provide domiciliary care services for a range of clients but our area of specialism is working with services users with acquired and traumatic brain injury.
We aim to provide the support and assistance the users of our services require to ensure that they enjoy a reasonable quality of life while living as independently as possible in their own homes. We train our employees to a high standard to ensure that they can provide the specialist care our service users require.
As a Momentum Care Rehabilitation Care and Support Worker you will help in all aspects of service users' daily life, including intimate personal care tasks, support to mobilise, administer medication, and assist with essential physiotherapy exercise routines and communication needs. Through an agreed plan of support, guidance and practical tasks, you will ensure that service users are not only encouraged to personalise and feel settled in their home by providing guidance and assisting with cooking, shopping, budgeting, housekeeping and other practical skills, but also enable service users to achieve a higher level of self-sufficiency and independence.
Our Rehabilitation Care and Support Workers are required to undertake sleepover duties and/or wakened night cover if this is considered necessary in the interest of the service users.
What we can offer:
We offer the opportunity to develop your career in a specialist care area, making a real and positive difference to the quality of life and opportunities for the people who use our services. We provide all the required training for our Rehabilitation Care and Support Workers to work in the registered care sector and for a range of more specialist care requirements to match the needs of the people who use our services.
What you’ll need to have:
Experience of working in the care sector, especially within a community setting, would be an advantage but is not essential as we can provide all the required training - we do ask that our employees are able to demonstrate that they are able to work at all times to the care regulation standards. You will need to be good at managing your time and be flexible around working hours. You will also need to show a commitment to your own continual professional development to match our training commitment to you.
