Blue Sky Enabling

Description

Our Organisation

Blue Sky Enabling specialises in flexible person-centred services for people with complex needs that focuses on their capacity and not just their disability. No matter what a person’s condition we support them to live active, engaged lives as part of their community.  We believe that everyone deserves to live with as much dignity, respect and independence as possible.

Job Description

We currently have a vacancy within our Older Adults team for a live-in enabler supporting an elderly man. The service user lives with his wife who has no care needs; she is however very supportive and the accommodation provided to the enabler is very comfortable and welcoming. The job will involve light domestic duties, preparing meals, providing personal care and companionship to the individual.

This individual does have personal care needs and a very small amount of challenging behaviour, however full training will be given and a manager will be available to answer any questions you may have. The busy times of the day are in the morning and evening when you will assist the Service user to get up, shower, get dressed and go to the living room where he has his breakfast. The Service User likes to be engaged in activities such as going for walks in the local area, going to town for coffee, watching a little television, spending time in his garden, going to singing for the brain and going swimming once a week.

This gentleman has Lewy Body Dementia, therefore some experience of, or training in, dementia is preferable; although full training will be given to update carers knowledge. A shadowing period with the individual’s current full time carer will be given prior to commencement of the role.

We are looking for someone who is kind, caring and ready to take on the important role of keeping this Service User living independently and happily.
This is a temporary placement to cover a full time carers holiday, however if you get on with the Service User and his wife, there are opportunities to work with them on a more ongoing basis. 

Key Responsibilities:
1) Provide daily support and companionship for the service user in his own home.
2) Maintain up to date records of daily activities.
3) Attend supervisions with Care Managers to discuss Support Plans and Service User progress.
4) Complete all necessary training and attend any extra (Service User specific) training that the Care Manager deems necessary.
5) Stay up to date with company Policies and Procedures.
6) Liaise and maintain a good relationship with the service user’s family.

Essential Requirements:
1.) Positive can-do attitude with a proven track record of putting energy and enthusiasm into previously assigned tasks.
2.) Experience with older people from a practical hands on role.
3.) Have a diverse range of relevant skills, knowledge and experience of working with people with complex needs. 
4.) Good listening, time management and communications skills.
5.) Have good written skills and basic IT.
6.) Desire to make a difference in the lives of older people.

Blue Sky Enabling provides staff with a supportive working environment that includes enhanced DBS, funded comprehensive on-line and practical training and assessment to recognised qualifications, 1:2:1 monthly professional supervision and appraisal, holiday pay and statutory sick pay.
