Are you a friendly face who can make a difference in our home?
The role of a Support Worker in our Residential Care Home is one of the most important; you are the friendly smiling face our residents rely on, and your hard work and dedication can make a huge and positive difference to their lives of people who struggle to live independently.
Our team is looking for a compassionate, warm, and caring person to join our team as a Support Worker.
The Gables, situated on Cleator Moor Road, Whitehaven, is a newly built care home that can accommodate up to 60 residents, providing a safe, secure and comfortable environment to those who are physically frail, highly dependent and people with Dementia.
This is a varied, challenging and incredibly rewarding role where you will support our residents with all aspects of their wellbeing, providing both physical and emotional care. This includes assistance with personal care, such as washing, toileting and feeding. You will also be an emotional support to our residents, getting to know each of them individually: sharing and talking about their interests, the past, family and hobbies, as well as helping our residents enjoy getting out into the community- e.g. taking trips out to the shops and local facilities.
You will also be responsible for administering medication, ensuring all security checks are completed, dealing with emergencies and assisting our Residents with any of their needs.
