Are you looking for a new opportunity within Adult Social Care? Our Reablement Service, are recruiting Support Workers to join our Cambridgeshire teams based in Cambridge and Ely.

About The Service:

The reablement team’s main goal is to help people stay as independent as possible. We do this by helping our service users, re-learn how to do things they have lost the ability or confidence to do. The Reablement Service is a significant element of the social care system, allowing people who might otherwise be unable to go home to leave hospital.

Some of the feedback from our service users include:

‘The carers that visited me were all very kind and a credit to the service’.
‘Carers were polite, caring and very patient and carried out their duties professionally’.
The Service I have received is phenomenal and has helped me with whatever I needed. Everyone has been so pleasant and always had a smile on their faces’.

About The Role:

Our Reablement Support Workers help people regain their independence by motivating and inspiring them to re-learn tasks and activities that are fundamental to their quality of life.

You will be fully trained to assist our service users to meet their care needs, which can range from motivational support to personal care.

You will work to individualised goal plans, with the aim of encouraging service users to do these things for themselves and wherever possible. This can include the use of assistive technology.

Not only will you make a positive difference to people’s lives, but you will also have the pleasure of seeing those changes first hand.

About You:

You don’t need social care qualifications to become a reablement support worker, but the right attitude and values are essential.
You must want to be the best Reablement Worker you can be and put the interests of the service user at the heart of everything you do.
