|Location:||Northampton, Kettering, Corby, Wellingborough, Towcester, Daventry, Rushden, Brixworth|
|Position:||Reablement Support Worker|
We are a short term service that supports older adults in a time of crisis which places them at risk of being admitted to hospital, or results in them being admitted to hospital.
This is an exciting opportunity to join a service that is forging brand new ways of working with our partners in East Midlands Ambulance Service, giving team members the opportunity to work alongside Ambulance technicians on Ambulances responding to vulnerable adults that have fallen in the community. There will also be opportunities to work in Accident and Emergency departments alongside the hospital staff to identify patients that can be discharged and cared for at home with our service, preventing them being admitted to long stay wards in our hospitals.
We also look to support frail and vulnerable adults in their own homes following a stay in hospital. This support can be in the form of helping someone with their personal care, giving advice and information about services available to them or the provision of a piece of equipment to promote a persons independence. To facilitate this work there are also opportunities to work alongside hospital staff to help plan for these discharges, promoting patient safety and developing positive working relationships with our NHS colleagues.
Working hours are variable, but the core shift pattern is 0700 to 1500 / 1500 to 2300, including weekends and bank holidays on a 4 week rota with varying shift pattern.
A generous Annual Leave allocation, access to the Local Government Pension Scheme and an occupational sick pay package are offered as terms and conditions of employment.
A full driving licence and the ability to drive confidently countywide is essential.
