Empowering customers to live independently and enjoy their retirement. That’s when it hits home.
We have a great opportunity for you to join our community wellbeing scheme in Scarborough. We support our customers who are aged 55+ to live independently in their own home and enjoy their well-earned retirement. Whether you have worked in care before and want to develop your career or are new to the care sector and want you to be given a chance to learn, we’re keen to hear from you.
The job in a nutshell
You will support our customers who have a range of support needs which may include frailty and dementia, helping to regain or maintain their independence and “live well” in their own home, supporting with every day daily living activities. You’ll also help customers who have more complex support needs with personal care including bathing, toileting and getting dressed.
No two days are the same as everything we do is “person centred” around our customers. You might help with personal care (e.g. bathing and issuing medication) in the morning, help to cook lunch, and maybe do a bit of shopping in the afternoon. We even help customers to go on holiday.
Where and when you do your job
We provide 24-hour support to our customers, and our team cover all hours between 7am to 10.00pm.
Our customers live in one of 63 beautifully designed apartments and have a variety of on-site facilities available including assisted living technology, wellbeing, care provision, restaurant, café, hair/beauty salon, communal rooms, and picturesque landscaped gardens. It’s a real community hub.
Your positive caring, can-do attitude and empathy really make a difference to help our customers to live their best lives. It would be great if you’ve worked in a CQC care setting previously, and the cherry on the cake would be if you also hold a Level 2 Diploma in Care. The great news is that it’s not a deal breaker if you haven’t had a job like this before, we won’t drop you in the deep end, we’ll nurture your talent, and help you understand how things work at Home Group.
About our team
There are 19 of us in the team, and we don’t just support our customers, we’re there for each other too. You’ll report to Bridie, our Registered Manager, who works with Jemma our Community and Wellbeing Manager. Both have a wealth of experience to lead our brilliant service and are perfectly placed to support you when you join.
Be yourself at Home
Home Group is committed to tackling prejudice and discrimination, not just for our customers, but for our colleagues too! We’re super proud of our internal Diversity Networks and allies (Multicultural, LGBTQIA+ and Disability) which support colleagues from different backgrounds to be their true selves. We recognise and celebrate our differences, together we make Home Group a great place to work. Let us know if you’d like us to make any adjustments to support you in your application or day to day on the job.
When you join, you’ll need to have a valid Enhanced Check under the Disclosure and Barring Service. The great news is that we will pay for that to be done if you don’t have a transferrable one.
