Support Worker - Kirklees
8 Doctor Lane, Mirfield, United Kingdom
Across Kirklees we are changing the way we design and deliver our services to vulnerable adults, to enable them to live their lives as they wish, confident that services are of high quality, are safe and promote their individual needs for independence, well-being and dignity. Our priorities are currently determined by the Government’s Care Act 2014 and requirements set out in the Care Quality Commission’s requirements relating to Key Lines of Enquiry. This sets out our objectives of delivering choice, control and independence for people who use our services alongside promoting a person-centred culture of respect. Our main role is to identify the care needs of adults living in Kirklees and to provide cost effective, quality services which safeguard and promote the wellbeing of those people in greatest need. We aim to arrange services which help people to live independently in their local communities or with families, friends and relatives for as long as they want, or are able. We offer a range of services to older people, people with a physical or sensory disability and people with learning disabilities. These services are provided 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, to meet our service user’s assessed needs. Support can be provided at home, in the community or in Council run establishments. This can include emergency response, respite and long term care or support to carers. We also offer support to people who have dementia or who are nearing the end of their life.
