Vacancies : Full time (37.5), Part Time, relief and night-shift roles available in our Home Care and Day & Overnight Responder services
At Carr Gomm, we appreciate how difficult the current climateis for everyone. Please be assured that the health and safety of people supported and our staff is a priority for us.
As a member of our team, you can expect :
The Oban Home Care service...
Provides support to people to lead a good quality of life in their own homes. The service aims to help people sustain, recover or manage their health, skills and abilities to lead independent and fulfilling lives.
Our role is not to do things for people but to work with them. The service also provides support to those approaching the end of their lives in their own homes, where this is their choice.
Throughout the day, you will be supporting individuals with their daily life routine, as per their support plan. This will often include meal preparation, medication administration, and personal care as well as other aspects of their daily life.
The Oban Day & Overnight Responder service...
Provides an effective and efficient way to respond to known risks that occur on an unplanned basis, for example falls and other accidents.
As well as this the service also provides planned supports. The responder approach ensures that people remain safe and well in their own home, whilst reducing incidences of ambulance call-outs and hospital admissions.
The responder approach is also more enabling as it removes for some people the requirement to rely on a sleepover service or 2 : 1 supports, by moving through a planned and risk-managed process towards greater independence and positive outcomes.
Please note that driving a car is an essential requirement for the day responder service and preferable for the overnight responder service.
