Social Care Reablement is a specialist Homecare team that works across the city to provide support to citizens in their own homes. This is mostly acute, short term care for citizens who have recently been discharged from Hospital or another service. The focus of the work done by Social Care Reablement is to help citizens reintegrate back into their previous lives, whether that is socially, physically or emotionally.
  
Social Care Reablement encourages independence and choice for citizens, and control over the way their care is provided. This involves not only providing personalised care as directed in the citizen’s care plan, but also encouraging and enhancing the wellbeing of citizens through promotion of independence, early intervention, community support and friendships.
  
Care Workers at Level 1 implement Care Plans and report any concerns or reasons care plans cannot be followed, as well as monitoring care and welfare of citizens, recording accurate information on running records, communication books, care plans monitoring charts (e.g. weight monitoring, falls, etc.) and other written and electronic communications as required.
   
Care Workers at Level 1 are also expected to work and cooperate with other professionals, as well as citizens and their meaningful others, to ensure a shared approach to care and support and continuity of care and treatment.
  
ESSENTIAL REQUIREMENTS:
• Implementation of Care Plans and contribution to running records and daily monitoring forms;
• Ability to encourage and support citizens to achieve and/or maintain maximum independence, and to maintain contact with friends, family and community;
• Knowledge and understanding of the rights, needs and feelings of vulnerable adults from diverse social and cultural backgrounds;
• Ability to follow all instructions, policies, procedures and guidelines.
