Advertisment text: Introduction
Vision Homes Association is a well-respected care organisation that supports adults who have learning, physical, communication and sensory disabilities.
We are looking for a reliable and enthusiastic Support Worker to join our staff team, working either 21 or 24 hours and one sleep-over shift per week.

You will be working solo, providing support to a woman with multiple disabilities and healthcare needs so that she can live independently within her own home, in a location near to Leominster. Your duties will include supporting her with her daily routines (which include her personal care and support with medical treatments and interventions) and her busy social life within the local community.

The successful candidate must be available to work a 4-weekly rolling shift pattern:
You should also be flexible to work additional shifts to help cover staff absences, possibly at short notice.

What we need from you
Previous experience is not essential as we provide full induction training and support. People join us from many different backgrounds; it's more important to us that you are understanding of the needs of people with disabilities, are reliable and are willing to learn.
We are ideally looking for someone with a positive “can-do” attitude and the stamina and enthusiasm to keep up with this lady’s busy life.
Your own car/ transport to get to and from work and a clean driving licence would also be advantageous, in order to drive this individual’s motability car.
