The Care at Home service has adopted a re-ablement model of service provision. We have moved away from the task and time approach, and ‘doing to’ or ‘doing for’ to ‘doing with’ and maximising service users’ long term independence and quality of life. The service now uses goal planning to re-able the service user to learn or relearn daily living skills and thus maximise their independence.
Home care work is both challenging and varied and, under guidance from the Social Care Coordinators, you will enable individuals to achieve as much independence as possible.
You should hold an HNC Social Services, SVQ Social Services and Healthcare at SCQF Level 6 or other relevant qualification to enable registration with the SSSC as a Worker in a Care at Home Service OR achieve this within 5 years of appointment. You are required to register with the Scottish Social Services Council within 6 months of appointment.
This post would ideally suit someone who has recent work experience in the social care field or similar. You will need the sort of personality that enjoys interacting with people and making a difference to their lives. If you are motivated, caring, honest, have a true desire to ‘work with’ people and have a sense of fun, then this could be the job for you and we are waiting to hear from you.
