Live In Enabler

Bath Avon, United Kingdom, GBP 545 - 570 per week Training and training bonuses, great pay, supportive Care Managers, Employed (PAYE)

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 female enabler supporting an elderly lady; there are no challenging behaviours or dementia, the lady is simply frail and in need of some practical support and companionship. The family live close by and are very supportive and the accommodation provided to the enabler is very comfortable and welcoming.

The job would involve light domestic duties, assistance with personal care, preparing meals, welcoming the service user’s guests and companionship. There is a car available for use and it will be expected that, as part of the job, you are able and willing to drive the Service User to various appointments. Personal care needs are low level and there will be some aspects of manual handling, however full training will be given and a manager will be available to answer any questions you may have.

This position is in the lovely village of Limpley Stoke, just outside of Bath. It is a peaceful village with a strong community spirit, yet only a 15 drive from Central Bath.

This position is a really special one and 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. The Service User responds well to more mature carers who have life experience and stories to share; the service user is a mother and grandmother so a carer who has had children and can relate on this level would be preferable (but not strictly necessary).

The rota pattern is 6 weeks on and 6 weeks off but this can be paired with another live-in contract to provide 9weeks on and 3 weeks off if the carer would prefer more weeks of work. Please inform of your preference when applying, or call 0800 456 1337 for more information.

Key Responsibilities:
1.) Provide daily support and companionship for the service user in her 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. 
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.
7.) Must be a driver and happy to drive the family’s car.

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.
