We have support workers who fit your needs and share your interests.
Support workers roles and responsibilities are varied – although they all involve working to improve the standard of care and quality of life for a client. On a day-to-day basis the job typically includes assisting clients with their care needs, for example, washing and dressing them, helping to administer them with basic care and ensuring that standards of hygiene are adhered to. The role also involves monitoring the health of clients, which can include checking their temperature, pulse and weight on a regular basis.
There is far more to the duties of a support worker than this, however. Support workers are also expected to assist in improving the quality of a client’s life, and this means helping them with tasks both inside and outside of the home. There are a wide range of basic tasks that can be challenging to the vulnerable, including bed-making, cooking, cleaning and even administrative tasks like paying bills – and as a support worker you will assist with these and more.
