It is an exciting time to be joining us in Community Re-ablement & Outreach as we continue to expand our service to support more people with packages of care in their own home. Our service supports people upon their discharge from hospital as well as helping to avoid people being admitted to hospital.

Following the promotion of one of our team members we are seeking a hospital based Re-ablement leader.

The position will be based at St Mary's hospital as part of our Trusted Assessor Team in the Integrated Discharge Service. Your role will be challenging where you will liaise with a wide range of people for which you will need to communicate well, keep clear records and be resilient. You will often be the first experience a person will get of our service, assessing people and informing them of how we can help them once they are at home.
 
You will work closely with our Response Co-ordinators, colleagues in the Regaining Independence Team and Social Care Officers, supporting and facilitating people’s journey through the service. You will need to have experience of health and social care services along with knowledge of supporting people in their own homes with an understanding of completing care plans and risk assessments in a strength based and person-centred way

This is a demanding role that involve working a flexible roster pattern that includes weekends and bank holidays. You will be at the forefront of service delivery, leading by example and ensuring high quality services for people using our service and their families and carers.

Interviews for this position will be on Wednesday 29 September.

For further information or an informal discussion please contact Amanda Davies, Trish, Brading or Yvonne Bell on: 01983 823830.
