Delivering support with a difference. That’s when it hits home.
We have a fabulous job opportunity for you to join our brand-new extra care Community Wellbeing scheme, Greenmill Gardens in the vibrant area of Seacroft, Leeds. We support older people aged 55+ with varying care and support needs to live independently in their own home with peace of mind.
We offer high quality living in our 64 beautifully designed apartments with a variety of on-site facilities including assistive technology, 24/7 on site wellbeing and care provision, café, hair/beauty salon and cosy communal lounges. We have an IT area, activity room and picturesque landscaped gardens. It’s a real hub within the local community. Brilliant isn’t it!
Based from our fantastic new building on Seacroft Crescent, we are just minutes A1M and very close to good public transport links, with bus stops just over the road at Seacroft Shopping Centre with routes around the city and Harrogate.
As our Lead Care Worker (known internally as a Lead Reablement Worker), you’ll support our customers in their own apartment within Greenmill Gardens who have a range of support needs including frailty and dementia.
You’ll help them to regain or maintain their independence and live well in their own home by carrying out every day daily living activities by themselves.
You’ll work with our customers to develop their care plans as well as coordinating and guiding our team of Reablement Workers to deliver on these plans, ensuring person centred and reablement focused care.
There are lots of exciting things for you to do, from leading on caseloads, risk assessments, support planning and working collaboratively with external agencies to assess and engage support for our customers. You’ll find that no two days are the same because everything we do is “person-centred” around our customers.
You’ll work closely with our housing management team to develop wellbeing activities for the customers that accommodate the needs and aspirations across the full spectrum of our customer population. Some of our customers will have more complex needs and you’ll manage complex personal care including stoma and catheter care.
During waking nights shifts, you’ll be the first point of contact for our customers out of normal working hours. Customers will rely on you to respond swiftly and sensitively to any emergency or unexpected support needs they may have and to lead on urgent communication with other professionals.
You’ll be passionate about making a big impact on our customers’ lives and helping us shape this exciting new service. Your empathy will really shine through as will your ability to empower customers to live their best life.
It’s important that you’ve had a job in a supported housing environment before, be willing to provide personal care and have an excellent understanding of safety, risk management CQC requirements and legislation in relation to personal care.
You’ll have a great understanding of professional boundaries, safeguarding, case management and creating personalised support plans.
You’ll hold a minimum Level 2 Diploma in Care, if you also hold Level 3 then this would be great, but if you don’t, we’ll pay and support you to achieve this. If you have previous experience in an older persons or extra care service before or supporting customers through a reablement approach this would be fantastic!
We won’t drop you in the deep end, we’ll nurture your talent, help you understand how things work at Home Group and you’ll have a fantastic induction with ongoing learning and support.
When you start your job, you’ll need to have a valid Enhanced Check under the Disclosure and Barring Service. The great news is that we will pay for this if you don’t have a transferrable one already.
We need a super team to provide 24-hour support to our customers, so you’ll work on a rota basis with shifts being between 10pm – 7:30am, including weekends and bank holidays.
We need you to be flexible to meet the needs of our customers but will endeavour to find the shifts that suit you and in return we’ll give you the time you need to spend time doing the things that matter to you!
