HomeCare+ invites applications from people keen to join our team of Support Workers.
HomeCare+ supports clients with a wide range of special needs, not only those who have a spinal cord injury.
As a Support Worker, you will visit clients in their own homes and support them to meet their daily living needs; activities that most people take for granted. This may include support with hygiene care (such as showering, bathing, toileting and dressing), support with mobility needs, shopping, cleaning, cooking, and even support to participate in recreational activities of the client’s choice in the community.
Although employment is on a casual basis, the work is often secure and ongoing, as you fulfil a very important role in your clients’ lives, providing a valuable and professional service.
Employment is offered following the receipt of a Child Related Employment Screening through DCSI, a current Provide First Aid Certificate, positive referee checks and the successful completion of HomeCare+ requirements of Pre-Employment Training.
