Age UK Lancashire’s Integrated Care Programme has an exciting and fulfilling post available in East lancs, where you can make a real difference to people’s lives.

As a Personal independence coordinator, you will be a key enabler of personalised planning that offers encouragement and support for individuals to self-manage and self-care using the best practice available. You will offer a continual supportive presence over a period of up to 12 weeks. This role will offer encouragement and support to people to achieve their goals and aspirations. The purpose is not to duplicate the services provided by other agencies, but to ensure that services and support are delivered in a personalised, coordinated, relevant and timely way for the individual.

This exciting service can give clients access to many agencies and support networks which they may not know are available to them. It brings together Voluntary Organisations and Health & Social Care services in East Lancashire to provide an innovative combination of medical and non-medical support for older people who are living with multiple long-term conditions, and who are at risk of recurring unplanned hospital admissions.

The Personal Independence Coordinator will form a key role within a multi -disciplinary team, The Integrated Neighbourhood Team, providing regular contact, liaison, brokerage and support planning to identify patients, their carer’s and family.

This role will suit individuals who have some experience in the voluntary, health or social care and wellbeing sector and have an understanding of the various needs and support needed for older people. Please note this is not a role offering personal care.

Closing date:      29th August 2022

Interviews:         TBC
