The Older Persons Service promotes social inclusion opportunities for isolated and lonely vulnerable older people by providing 1:1 support in people’s own homes. The regular contact that this service will bring will make a real difference to an older person’s life. Older people will ideally benefit emotionally through shared interests and experiences with their matched staff member and also through practical assistance, such as help with transport to Health Services including GP, dentist and hospital appointments, collection of prescription, support to attend appointments, shopping trips and social outings.
The purpose of the job is to work closely with the project workers and volunteers to support the people who receive our services to become engaged and included within their communities.
To be considered for this role you must be able to demonstrate you are educated to a general standard and have knowledge and understanding of the issues affecting older people.
Good personal computer skills and the ability to use technology efficiently to maintain and update records is essential for this role. You must be able to work openly and honestly in a team setting and have the ability to prioritise your own caseload.
An ability to drive and able to travel between services as required is essential for this role.
